Smooth video capture

When I run a PowerPoint presentation by itself, the animations are very fluid and smooth. When I use the Camtasia plugin to record the same PowerPoint presentation, the animations become less smooth. Path animations are "jittery", and other things happen in fits and spurts. I have tried shutting down everything and running just PowerPoint and Camtasia, but it does not help. It's important that I get smooth output for my clients. Do I need to upgrade my hardware? My current computer has 16GB of RAM and an i7 processor, so it is not a piece of junk. But, I'm thinking it may not be good enough for what I am trying to do. Thanks in advance for the help.

My only suggestion would be to ensure that the capture frame rate is 24 or higher. In the plugin settings you'll see the drop down menu.
