This is from the September 09, 2014 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut! and Popup Card Studio
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/39844/september-9th-webinar-over-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:30 PCS and MTC: User had an image of their house that they wanted to use to make a pop-up card from the image. Bryan reviews how he would approach doing the project. He first takes the image file into MTC to do some “cleanup” work and then takes it in as one flat image
00:14:30 PCS and MTC: Bryan continues with the demonstration of the house image to create a pop-up but creates it with 4 different “levels” to the image to pop out in PCS. (Note: also see the 09/16/14 MTC/PCS Webinar at timestamp of 00:22:10 where Susan “corrects” a portion of what Bryan shows in this demonstration).
00:34:35 MTC: Bryan shows creating an easel card with words that pop up from the base of the card to act as the “stop” mechanism
00:51:32 MTC: Bryan shows options on how to work with a photo to cut it into a specific shape as discussed in this thread here: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/39835/photo-cute-in-make-a-cut. He first shows importing a portion of the photo into MTC using pixel trace with texture. He then brings in the Vector PDF template and uses the “join” feature to fill the locket template with the photo. He then explains how to create a “bleed” area to allow room for any slight offset that might occur when cutting
01:10:40 MTC: Bryan then continues and shows how he would do something similar if he had a preprinted picture or image that he wanted to cut out in a particular shape without actually printing from MTC
01:20:56 MTC: Bryan addresses questions in regards to old versions of MTC and working with the no longer supported Cricut machines. Version 4.1.0 is the last version of MTC that worked with old Cricut machines IF you have the required plug-in for that cutter (note it will NOT work with the Explore machine.) He then discusses options on trying to run two versions of MTC in order to keep an old version of MTC to run on an old unsupported cutter and a new version to use all the latest features and updates and the importance of keeping backups of any and all versions of MTC you think you need to retain since it is not possible to get old versions from any other source. Latest version of MTC and the supported plug-ins can be found on their home site here: make-the-cut.com/Download.aspx?ref=lp
01:25:45 MTC: Julie demonstrates how she would create an easel card attached to a drawer box
