PPT slides and Trec recording

I'm super new to Camtasia, so sorry in advance.

I created a project by recording my screen, it's great.  I then added PPT slides to my media bin.

I want the PPT slides to play before the recording, so I moved to the recording to Track 2 and added the PPT slides to Track 1, but on the recording plays.

Is this not possible? If it is possible what am I doing wrong??

Thank you!

The timeline is exactly that. You place the slides first, and the video second in line on the same track.

You seem to have zero video editing skills.You need to learn the basics to have success.

I suggest you watch some tutorials to get started.https://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-camtasia.html

A timeline plays left to right, pretty much like reading a sentence (well, a sentence in a Western European language).  Tracks are stacked one above the other -- and this does not control the order of playing, only what is "on top" of the track(s) below.  All of the tracks play left-to-right, but if you put video on a track above the slides, the video will be visible (and will hide the slides underneath).  If you have multiple audio tracks, they all play at the same time as the timeline progresses.
