Having a ton of fun building this course in Captivate.
And I was totally correct, building in Illustrator and then re-creating in Captivate is working a lot faster for me. It took me only two hours this morning to build a new theme and create the first four screens, interactions and all. Importing custom assets is super easy when you’ve already determined your layout and final dimensions.
I started building my ‘learn to bake… Sugar Cookies’ course in Captivate.
But it was sort of a headache (because of all the custom graphics I’m using) so I’ve gone back to lay the whole thing out in Illustrator instead. After I do that, it should be a cinch to rebuild it all in Captivate. I can just re-create all the basic shapes (rounded rectangles and all that) and pull the custom assets out of the Illustrator file as I need them.
Super excited to get this finished now!
