I made an audio interview, using camtasia studio 8.I have a transcript which I plan to lay on top of the audio track to produce a video.
My idea is to make slides with Powerpoint and include that as a Camtasia track.
Has anyone done this like that?
is there a better way to make a video from an audio file?
Any additional tools necessara.
Looking forward to your comments.

Why can't we insert MP4 into PPT successfully?

PowerPoint 2007 and lower version: According to Microsoft, PowerPoint 2007 and lower version only support WMV, AVI, ASF, and MPG (MPEG-1) video formats, that's why you can't play MP4 in PowerPoint 2007/2003/2002/2000/97/95.

PowerPoint 2010: Only support .mp4, .mov, and .qt formats if the Apple QuickTime player is installed.

PowerPoint 2013: Only support .mp4 videos encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio. If the source MP4 file doesn't meet the above requirement, PowerPoint won't play it.

Here is a guide to help you insert MP4 files into PowerPoint smoothly.
