This is from the July 08, 2014 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut! and Popup Card Studio
PLEASE NOTE: I experienced a power outage partway through the webinar (during Susan's demo) which interrupted the recording. Therefore, there is a break in the recording around the 17:20 mark, and some of Susan's demo is missing.
Make the Cut version 4.6.1 & Popup Card Studio 1.1.0 are used in this Webinar. Each question notes if MTC or PCS is being discussed.
You can find the thread on the MTC Forum with questions addressed in this Webinar here: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/39211/july-8th-webinar-over-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:33 PCS: Susan demos creating a simple180 degree “pop-up card”
Note: Bryan experienced a power outage and the recording was interrupted during Susan’s demo. As a result, there is a break in the recording around the 00:17:17 or 00:17:20 mark and therefore some of Susan’ demo is missing.
00:23:37 MTC: Bryan demos creating a stencil from a parrot image. He shows tracing the original image first, then shows how to thin lines and fill in the gaps to get a cleaner stencil. Image Bryan used for demo can be found here: freeprintablestencils.com/freestencils/printable/birds/parrot_bird-stencil.jpg
00:47:05 Bryan traces same parrot image to show how to low of a threshold can give you a poor trace of an image. He then shows how he works with an image that has some possible issues with it. He also reviews using different tools in the tracing feature to get different results.
01:06:30 MTC files to use with the Brother ScanNCut – Julie demos how to “unstack” a design in MTC and then export it out as an SVG file to then import into the ScanNCut
01:20:03 MTC: Julie repeats from her demo how to trace in a picture to MTC as a “texture” so you have it to compare to the file you are working on. 2 keys is you have to select texturize and use 255 as the threshold value Bryan then answers some follow-up questions regarding tracing.
