Need to display myself in a video, but off to the side.

Placing a video of me on the side of a presentation.

I have seen this done with great effect. The person leading a presentation has slide after slide and can appear in the corner or center, at will. That person is the speaker and the one leading the pitch.

Please explain how this works?

I always thought you'd need a green screen behind you to make that work, but apparently not.

I would use PowerPoint on a Mac.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need specialised software to do this
Camtasia can do this same with open broadcaster

You can do it by converting the ppt to a ppt compatible video format and then inserting a video of yourself on top and setting both to start on first click of the presentation or by simply making separate clips of yourself for each slide.  But as David hints Powerpoint isn't the greatest tool for this and there are a lot of other options in the marketplace.  You certainly don't need green-screen technology- unless you want the "Weather presenter look".

I am surprised you need to convert the powerpoint to video. That's a great idea and solves the problem for me.

But, only a few weeks ago, I saw a project manager super-impose his live video image over Jira as we discussed our daily SCRUM.

I know you've accepted an answer, but it seems that my response didn't appear so I'll put it in here for future reference.

You can do this in PPT directly if you have an Office 365 subscription. On the Recording tab, click Record Slide Show. PPT will open the file full-screen with various tools enabled. Click Settings in the upper right corner to turn on your camera if it's not on by default.

If you don't see the Recording tab, you can enable it by going to File | Options | Optimize Ribbon and click Recording in the list of tabs on the right.
