Creates tutorials, other demos
Adobe will, in the form of Captivate 5, bring Captivate to the Mac for the first time this June, the company has announced. Previously Windows-only, the app is used to create tutorials, demonstrations, simulations and quizzes, and supports AIR, Acrobat.com and features like video screen capture. New to v5 is animation, object-style editing and synchronized video.
Captivate for the Mac will require Mac OS X 10.5.7, and cost $799 new. The software will also be a part of Adobe's eLearning Suite 2, which typically includes Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop Extended, Presenter and Soundbooth; Presenter, though, is still a Windows-only title. Pre-orders for all versions of the software are being taken on Adobe's website.
