This is from the January 24, 2012 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut!
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:55 Shadowing – is there a way to give a specific size to a shadow other than using the slider bar as that doesn’t always get size desired (Short answer no but Bryan explains why and gives a possible workaround to get better shadowing)
00:12:30 Using the Tiler Feature to create Wall Art (Advanced ? Tiler (general information) also discussion on specifically using it with a Cricut and its cutting limitations on size (i.e. can’t use full 12x12 mat)
00:31:23 Does MTC work with any of the following cutters: PCUT CT0630, CS630/CSI1200, SC 631 with optical eye (short answer not supported cutters thus no specific plug-ins for these machines but may work with one of the plug-ins for another cutter – user would need to try and see.)
00:45:40 Chipboard – general discussion of chipboard density, what is chipboard and cutting it on different machines
00:49:40 MTC for the MAC (Note: it is presently being beta tested with the Zing machine and is still working on using with the KNK Maxx – needs some tweeking. Send Andy an email at MTC support if you have a Zing and want to Beta test.
00:51:10 Should Zing users update to the latest MTC version 4.1.0 and the latest Zing plugin (Yes, added new features and fixed some minor bugs)
00:52:45 Importing a picture of a face from a photo; 2 ways to do, multiple layers for dimension - see paperkutz and his tutorials and information on doing this (paperkutzstudio.wordpress.com/) Bryan demonstrates here how to do a single layer/color portrait
01:22:45 How to use “symbols” from a font, from dingbats, or wingbats if you don’t know the proper key assigned to type it in the text box
01:32:10 Problem with MTC crashing when attempting to set blade origin and trying to move with the arrows – (user has a Zing and had a recent upgrade to windows OS). (Note: some people have a problem when trying to move up with the up arrow and trying to move up more than 1”). User to try to reproduce and send info. To Bryan via email
01:36:25 Zing Detail Blade (new fine red detail blade) leaving small tiny slits in some cuts. User wants to know how to fix or minimize problem (quick answer – check offset settings and adjust, test cut with a star object (anything with inside and outside corners.) Contact Bryan if cannot get fixed.
01:40:20 Fonts – Why Does Bryan have some Fonts on his MTC pull-down list but I don’t have them? (Note: Fonts are reliant upon what you have installed on your computer. Everyone’s list will be different. Also note, too many fonts added to your system can bog down your computer. MTC can use Fonts without having them installed to your Windows Font Folder.)
01:45:50 Trying to separate image into different layers and/or pages
01:55:50 Trouble connecting to cut with a Cricut previously connecting and working
02:01:05 Opening an SVG in MTC and adding color (NOTE: You must “IMPORT” an SVG File)
