Add PowerPoint Slides to a Camtasia Project
If you often make videos out of PowerPoint presentations, you can now import PowerPoint slides directly into Camtasia and quickly edit them to match audio narration.
First, make sure that PowerPoint is closed. Then click the Import Media button and choose your PowerPoint file. Camtasia converts each slide into an image (PNG) and adds it to the media bin. Drag slides to timeline and edit them like any other media in a project.
Drag a Presentation to Camtasia
If you are using Camtasia on Windows, you can add a PowerPoint presentation by clicking and dragging it into Camtasia. Add it directly to the Media Bin or Timeline by dragging to either one.
If you add the presentation to the Timeline, each slide is added in order and set to the default image duration.
Default Slide Duration
To change the default slide duration, go to Edit > Preferences and then choose the Timing tab. Set the “Images” option to the desired duration and click OK.
With your presentation on the timeline, use ripple move to create space in between slides to fine tune their timing. To do this, hold shift, then click and drag.
This moves all of the media to the right of a clip, which allows you to extend the slide and provide yourself more time for narration.
