Why do you want it in one track? You have much more flexibility if you use separate tracks, then group them. That will reduce the group to a single track. 

If you definitely want a single track, you can create the video as above, export it as a .avi file, then import it back into the project as a single media asset.

Basically, I have an MP4 of an actual manufacturing process AND I have an AVI showing an animation of an engineering  simulation of this manufacturing process, which I would like to show to my customer in a smaller box on top of the MP4 video of the process. Not sure of the best way to do this... Please point to any tutorial videos which may provide an optional CAMTASIA procedure to follow, if available. Thanks!

put the MP4 on bottom track at 100% scale; put AVI on higher track, scale down to size you want; position as desired

WOW! Way easier to do than I thought...Thanks!
Should I ask another question in another POST? It has to do with syncing up the animation with the video.

if they happen at different rates, use clip speed adjustment to change one against the other

the video placement you describe is called picture-in-picture; with Camtasia, you can also size both to run side-by-side
