00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:01:02 MTC: Bryan demonstrates how to create “Knock-Out Text” (text and graphic “merged” into one image); Bryan shows several images
Also see: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/40576/knock-out-text
00:22:32 MTC: Bryan shows how to take a shadow of a cat image and add the cat’s name into the middle of the shape to create the “body” with the name its self; he demonstrates using couple different cat images
00:56:48 MTC: Bryan explains that you may need to first “unlock” the file’s layer when you import from the MTC Gallery in order to resize or move; he explains why they might be “locked”
00:58:48 MTC: Bryan reviews file shared on question thread that user had trouble trying to import with Pixel Trace and explains what causes the problem and then addresses how to fix it and bring it in. Note: Not all files are created equal or are not created to cut with a machine which means you can encounter similar problems with files you wish to import – see next time stamp for Bryan’s review as to HOW he would do this with MTC
01:09:20 MTC: Bryan then reviews this particular PDF file and explains HOW he would bring it into MTC for cutting purposes (Note: you will also need to use the Free Inkscape Graphics program as well to “export out as bitmap”). Cavet: This may not work with every file – what will or won’t work depends upon the file and how they were created
01:24:00 MTC: Julie demonstrates how to create snowflakes with this free snowflake generator: paulkaplan.me/SnowflakeGenerator also see this thread on the forum: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/40535/have-you-seen-this-before-snowflake-generator; she shows how to create your snowflake, save it as an SVG file and then import the SVG file into MTC and then enhance it with MTC tools. Other snowflake generators previously shared on the forum can be found here: snowflakes.barkleyus.com and evilmadscientist.com/2008/vector-snowflake-application
01:35:00 Bryan showed Susan’s Susan Bluerobot “knockout text” image she created based on his earlier demo. Then he assigned “homework” – try to create your own snowflakes, put a name in a silhouette shape, or create your own “knockout text” image and then share them on the forum.
