Camtasia Relay Recorder and webcam visibility in PowerPoint Slide Show mode

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
I'm using Camtasia Relay Recorder to record my PowerPoint presentations with the webcam option selected. This part is working fine. However, I'd like the webcam to be visible in PowerPoints slide show mode. Is there an easy way to do this? I've had a browse online and see reference to downloading Expression encoder and enabling Windows Media Player within Powerpoint but  I was hoping for an easier solution that doesn't require this kind of set-up. Does Camtasia Relay Recorder have this functionality?

  I guess I'm not sure exactly what you're saying here.  Are you using the full recorder or the PowerPoint Add-in? 

  There is currently no way in the interface to enable the Picture in Picture webcam when using the PowerPoint add-in.  However, you can just use the full recorder, enable the webcam and then record a PowerPoint presentation.  You'll still get all of the Table of Contents entries in the output video, it's just a slightly less easy way to startup the recorder.

  If you use the full recorder and select the webcam option and then start your recording the webcam video will appear over the PowerPoing slideshow.  I hope that helps!  If I misinterpreted your question in some way, please let me know.

Live webcam video preview of presenter must be visible in a slide show (on top, resizable and movable) even when it is not being recorded (like a live presentation)
This is a long awaited feature to be available in Camtasia
