Video Creation Tools Screenshot


Choose how you want to record your movie: automatically record the steps a user takes to accomplish a task; manually take a screenshot each step of the way; or record full-motion video.


Decide what your viewers need: add or modify text bubbles, cursor movements, or timing; add objects, music, narration or special effects.


Select the output format and publish your movie.

Powerful Single-sourcing Features

MadCap Software is the only vendor in the industry to allow for maximum content reuse by applying the same rules used for text to movies, callouts and images. By adding variables to callouts for example, there’s no need to recapture or reinsert callouts into your documentation when text or version changes are required.

Mimic has numerous single-sourcing features that save you time and effort by letting you create content once and reuse it in multiple places. This includes:

  • Variables
  • Condition tags
  • Targets
  • Palettes
  • Master frames
  • Frame libraries

Project Conditions and Variable Links: When inserting a Mimic Movie/Project into a Flare project, all of your movie frames and objects have access to the conditions and variables in the Flare project.
