Seriously? It can't capture live video as an inset?

Like so many, trying to record a PPT with live webcam inset. Tried using screen recording through Camtasia 7. also using PPT with your add in, aslo PPT using its own video option. Nothing works. This seems like a no brain capability. What am I missing?

If your running Camtasia 7 on windows 10.
Your missing an updated version of Camtasia more then likely. Camtasia 7's recorder won't work correctly on Windows 10.
You could download a trial version of Camtasia 2018, see if it will do what you want it to.If it does, that's your solution.
I think it was Windows 8 that Camtasia 7 quit working correctly for me.

I'd make a test, but I still run v8.6 and used the Add-In toolbar only once.  Was about to make a test but I just noticed that the Add-In is no longer shown as available in my current version of PPT (2016) -- but I don't know how to get it back (not going to try re-installing Camtasia to do it!).

Thanks, Joe. Win 10 has been trouble for a lot of reasons
I'm simply trying to record live webcam video concurrently with a PPT 2013. A live narrator video inset. PPT claims to do this, but the various methods involve installing obsolete things that block this.
Having already spent hundreds for 7, I'm not excited about $100 (33%) cost to upgrade. There are lots of cheapo utilities/addins that claim to do this, any ideas there?
Thanks again

I don't know of any options rmb52,

I'm not much of a PPT user.

Hey rg,

You enable PPT in preferences, He's running PPT 2013 and Camtasia 7 , so I'm not sure where your test would get him.
