That’s a lot of elements to track, so Captivate organizes the assets more logically in a folder called Captivate Objects, which contains the following subfolders:

  • Backgrounds (Captivate)
  • Captions (Captivate)
  • Elements (Captivate)
  • Images (Captivate)
  • Interactions (Captivate)
  • Mouse pointers (Captivate)

In the next section, you’ll learn how to read the Flash Timeline.
