Can I film with a webcam at the same time while using Camtasia screen capture?

I use Camtasia with Protools HDX on my Mac and it's great but I also film in the room for discussion and I can keep it synced, it's as iff Camtasia is recording at a different rate than my Canon 80D. It's drive me crazy and wasting a lot of time. Is there a way to just set up a webcam into the computer and run a track along with the screen capture that will be sample and frame accurate? 
And if I can record an in room webcam with video and sound can I export that separately from my screen capture file to edit in Final Cut?

Hi- yes Camtasia has webcam recording built into it, which can be used at the same time as the screen recording. I'm not sure what the issue is around syncing, though if you're recording these independently it's not uncommon for them to be a bit out of sync.

There is not a great way to pull them separately into Final Cut. You could add them each separately to the timeline, produce a video, then do the other one?
