This is from the May 05, 2015 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut! and Popup Card Studio
Make the Cut version 4.6.2 & 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/41701/may-5th-webinar-over-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:30 PCS: Susan demonstrates how to create a 180 degree pop up card for Mother’s Day. Find more information on the assembly and her pattern on her blog here: susanbluerobot.com/2015/05/80-mothers-day-card-2015.html. (For more help and info on creating 180 degree cards with PCS, see the PCS Videos on Susan’s Blog (PCS 033, 034, 035, 036 in particular deal with 180 degree pop up, they are listed down the left hand side of her blog. Also see the 03/25/14 and the 07/08/14 MTC Webinar recordings where Susan and Bryan demonstrated making other 180 degree pop ups.)
00:34:31 MTC: Susan showed taking the file into MTC for cutting using the WYSIWYG mode
00:40:00 PCS: Bryan answers some email questions. First, there is no “measuring tool” in PCS like there is in MTC. He then shows how to “split the screen” in PCS to show several views at once and explains why you might want to use the split screen view (simply to help some in while designing.)
00:45:06 MTC: (Bryan momentarily skips the font question in the thread.) Bryan discusses how to attempt to warp shapes in a spherical manner as shown in the question thread. He reviews different ideas on ways you might try to do it with different tools, Bezier warp, warping handles, wrap object to path with warping on but there is no tool to let you easily do.

01:06:05 MTC: Bryan addresses a question as to whether or not it is better to use the TTF or the OTF version of a font. (Note: the problem the user of the question was having was not a TTF versus OTF issue but that she had the “bold” on which caused her problem.) In general, TTF or OTF shouldn’t matter as MTC can use either.
01:10:46 MTC: Julie continues the discussion on TTF and OTF fonts and demonstrates how having “bold” on when the font does not have a “bold” version will cause errors. Note: if you use “bold”, MTC remembers that until you turn it off.
01:13:20 MTC: Julie reviews the basic steps she used in cleaning up the rose stencil font she showed in the 04/28/15 MTC Webinar at the 00:20:10 timestamp.
01:14:24 PCS: Julie shows how to create a triple step pop up card base for use in creating similar cards to those created with this tutorial here: splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/triplesteppopup/ (also see more samples of similar cards here: splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=25963.) She then shows how to export out as an SVG file and import into other programs that can import and use an SVG file.
01:32:18 Rather than email questions to Bryan, if you have a question about MTC or PCS, it is better to ask the question in a thread on the MTC forum so that you can get a faster answer probably and get input from a number of people as to how to address forum.make-the-cut.com
