This will give you the opportunity to review all Captivate objects one by one and uncover the application's main tools. Then, you will use the built-in capture engine of Captivate to create an interactive software simulation and a Video Demo that can be uploaded to your YouTube channel or published as an MP4 video. Finally, you will approach the advanced responsive features of Captivate to create a project that can be viewed on any device. At the end of the book, you will empower your workflow and projects with the most advanced features of the application, including variables, advanced actions, using Captivate with other applications, and more.
