I'm continuing to enjoy developing eLearning using the new Adobe Captivate 8. And the more I use this updated version, the more I find subtle improvements and new features. Take video demos for instance. I use the video demo recording mode frequently (it's the mode I use for the videos I upload to YouTube).
While recording a recent video, I noticed a new tab on the Video Effects Inspector: Popup.
It just so happened that I had recorded a video and had inadvertently captured a yellow tooltip (shown in the image below). I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to test the Cleanup button on the Popup tab.
On the Timeline, I positioned the playhead at the part of the video where the popup first appeared.
On the Video Effects Inspector, I selected the Popup tab
and clicked the Cleanup button.
On the slide, I drew a rectangle around the popup.
Note: When you try this at home, don't worry if your rectangle doesn't completely cover the popup. If your rectangle is too large or small at first, you can resize it using the resizing handles at any time. You can also drag the rectangle via its borders to move it to a different location on the video.
And just like that, the area within the popup rectangle I drew was removed from the video.
