Replace Adobe Captivate for free?

Just ran across this free application that could be a replacement for Adobe Captivate, if you’re looking for a quick and dirty way to create software demos. Did I mention it’s free?

Just from the screenshots and incredibly short example, it looks like it does a pretty good job, but isn’t as polished looking as Captivate.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I plan to soon. It might be a decent alternative for Subject Matter Experts who need to do something as a one-off, rather than purchasing a Captivate (or similar tool) license for them.

    I actually haven’t gotten back to this yet to try in more detail, but I’ve recently tried another screen capture solution, Jing, that was pretty good for demos (though it didn’t have annotation tools that I noticed for video).

    ActivePresenter is free to create video tutorials with rich annotations but for interactive contents (Flash, HTML5) likes Captivate, you have purchase about 450$.
