To access the PowerPoint Add-in Toolbar, open PowerPoint and select the “Add-ins” tab in the top toolbar. From there, you should see the familiar Camtasia record button, along with a few other options to customize a recording.
*The PowerPoint Add-in toolbar is installed by default with Camtasia. If it doesn’t appear in PowerPoint, you may need to enable it. To do this, go to File > Options > Add-ins. Click on the Manage dropdown, select Disabled Items, then click Go. If the Camtasia Add-in is listed, select it, and click Enable.
The Camtasia PowerPoint Add-in provides a robust set of recording options, all of which can be customized.
For example, you can enable or disable webcam recording, system audio and microphone audio. Or, you can set hotkeys, frame rate and more in the settings dialogue.
To start a recording, click the red record button, test your audio settings, then choose “Click to Begin Recording.” At this point, the PowerPoint presentation will automatically switch to presentation mode and the recording begins.
To finish a recording, simply leave PowerPoint’s presentation mode and the recording will automatically pause. A dialogue will appear, where you can choose to produce your recording or open it directly in Camtasia.
