Here is what a Captivate-published SWF might look like as seen in a PDF:
- Open a Captivate project
- Choose Edit > Preferences
- Select the Start and End category
- Click the Browse button to the right of Loading Screen
- You can select just about any animation format or image as your loading screen. However, if you select an image (such as a JPG or BMP), the image will serve as a splash screen and appear when the user comes across the SWF in the PDF. If you are planning to incorporate your SWFs into a print document, I encourage you to take this route.
- After selecting the appropriate image, click OK
- Publish the SWF
- Reimport the SWF into your print publishing tool and recreate the PDF
