This is from the July 17, 2012 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut!
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks

00:02:10 Print and Cut question (postponed until later for Bryan)
00:02:53 Discussion of Calibration of the Cameo with MTC for Print and Cut (Andy discusses in general and notes that MTC does not “calibrate” – calibration has to do with the machine its self – for Cameo must calibrate through Silhouette software)
00:06:50 User wants to trace and image and then “thin paths” to “draw” it with her cutter. Andy gives tips on how to get a good trace and then thin paths.
00:13:50 User has questions regarding using “layers” in MTC. When she creates a new object, it is often added to an old layer that is “hidden”. Andy explains the problem and that you need to make sure that you are actually working on the correct layer.

00:17:25 Calibrating the Laser on the zing (see also prior Webinars)
00:19:30 Andy’s Rules to getting good alignment for “print and cut” (key is selecting correct mat size based on MAT size being used not the size of paper – Andy says this part in the Zing manual is not correct)
00:50:00 Creating a “cut-out” of a portion of a shaped card (for example, the shape of the Angel’s head – user created card so that Angel’s head stood out away form fold of card)

01:47:17 Bryan discusses other places to find help for working with MTC
01:52:00 How to take a coloring book image and do a pixel trace on it for cutting (discusses importance of knowing that all images do not make for good files to trace and how to determine if an image will work or not)
02:11:25 Using the inverse eraser to “add” to a file rather than “erase”
