Not sure what version you're using, but you can get the general idea by watching this tutorial:

Yes. I think the easiest is to record the slides as short, separate movies. In Camtasia, on the timeline, you "split" the track and drop in the new separate movies where you like and it will appear seamless upon playback.

Thank you Mike. Yes I had to record separate and drop in the power point slides. Thank you for the idea!!

It was a problem though i never found camtasia in the addins in powerpoint, eventhough i enable powerpoint in camtasia first. the version i have is powerpoint 2010 and camtasia studio 8. I should be doing something wrong. When i go to camtasia and click record powerpoint, automatically open a new blank powerpoint presentation. And when i click addins, it takes me to bluetooth the only option.

What can i do to activate camtasia in my powerpoint?

Not sure why you're not seeing the Record Camtasia button in PowerPoint, but, I gotta tell you, you don't need it anyway (I never use the plugin). Just get your PowerPoint screen "ready to record" in a window and record it like any other program.

In PP 2010, go to the Slide Show Tab, then Set Up Slide Show. Make sure "Browse by an individual (window)" is selected in the show type section.

Now "run" the show (F5) and size to your needs. Then just open the CS recorder and ... well you know the rest. Record the screen. Save as ... etc.

Let us know how it works out.
