I have saved a powerpoint presentation as a mp4 file.  The power point presentation has each line of text as fading in on each slide of the presentation.  This is to  tie in with the audio.  The audio I have recorded using camtasia.  Is there an easier way to tie the audio to the right powerpoint slide other than cutting and slicing the powerpoint presentation to align with the audio?  Is there a better way or quicker way to record audio with the presentation which has animation set in powerpoint for fading in this text?

You could consider recording audio and the slideshow at the same time. Either use the Camtasia add-in within PowerPoint or play the slideshow and use the Camtasia Recorder. When you use the add-in it, Markers will be added to the Timeline indicating a new slide, which can be helpful when recording audio separately and aligning in the Editor.
Hope this helps,
Jayne

Thanks Jayne, yes you are right. I realized the issue was that powerpoint presenter mode wasn't working on my program which made it difficult to read my notes.   I've worked out how to sort this issue out now and I'll do as you suggested recording audio and the slide show at the same time

Jayne has it right.. using the Camtasia and PowerPoint workflow will be the best solution.
