00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:30 MTC: Bryan shows how he would create a 4 sided elongated 3D pyramid to match specific measurements as required by user. He first explains why the “basic shapes” may note be the best starting point when “size accuracy” matters. He uses the drawing tools in node editing to create the shapes needed to build the pyramid. Shows the Edit?rotate?rotate duplicate tool. Also shows “fuse and weld” tool. Triangle calculator used was found here: calculator.net/triangle-calculator.html

00:27:41 MTC: Tracing a portion of a photo (pixel tracing and hand tracing covered) – Bryan first discusses that “size matters” when trying to trace a photo or an image – the bigger it is, the better the trace, too small may be difficult. The “busier” the photo, the harder it is to get the single item you want traced. He then shows how to work with the “pixel trace” tool and adjusting its various settings to try to get the best image for cutting in vinyl. He then uses the node editing tools to do a “hand trace” or draw in the portion of the picture that would not – trace in well.
00:55:00 MTC: Julie looks at importing an image of a photo frame with text so that the user can create an image for a mock up for showing to the customer with different colored text. She reviews the pixel tracing tools, printing option tools and the Export to Raster file tools
01:07:12 MTC: Bryan takes back the screen and shows how to import a photo of a “wall” to show the vinyl “layered” onto a wall for a picture to show a client; also shows using the “perspective warp” in the auto 4 point warp tool
01:17:30 MTC: Bryan looks at the Jigsaw Puzzle Generator and its “advanced” features
