every time i try to log in to ask a support question it lets me and then at 
the end asks me to put my password to link my 2 emails which i do  then it 
says Oops something went wrong.  done it 4 x now.  Its almost like  Techsmith 
doesnt want to answer my questions
Thw specific question I was hoping to get an answer to is this. 
I have a webinar which shows me but not the screenshots I did.  I want to add a 
powerpoint so that sometimes the views sees me and sometimes the 
powerpoint/screenshots.  Does anyone know how to do this? Camtasia 8

Hi Carole and sorry to hear of the frustration regarding opening a ticket;

With regard to the question; in Camtasia 9 you can import PowerPoint files as images and your webinar file (assuming it is a supported format). Once both are imported into Camtasia you would place your webinar on Track 1 and then the PowerPoint slides on Track 2. From there you'd adjust the length of each slide as needed. When you want to show just you, simply reduce the length of the slide that is on the track above that area. See here.

Thanks Robert
I have Camtasia 8 - so was planning on recording the Powerpoint as it plays (I have all the specific timings of when slides need to come in.  Putting on track 2.  Deleting the audio, and then resizing my webinar on track one to be smaller and in the corner, then they can see the Powerpoint and me as a little butty person in the top of the screen  Would that work?

Hi Carole!

Though the timeline looks slightly different between Camtasia Studio 8 and Camtasia 9, then concept is identical, though for your case you'll actually want to flip the tracks (have your video of you in person on the top track. the screen recording/PowerPoint slides on the bottom). This way you can actually shrink your picture-in-picture video down when appropriate, then make it large where you deem necessary.
