00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:01:22 Susan of Susanbluerobot gives a demonstration on creating a “stamped edge lattice card”. (Note: This technique can be used with an actual stamped image that you own or with a digital stamped image you have on your computer. If using a physical stamp, you would scan it into your computer first.)

00:17:30 End of Susan’s Demo of the “Stamped Edge Lattice Card”
00:17:31 Follow-up ?s on Demo including using the pencil in node editing
00:26:15 User had a ? on how to make a cupcake wrapper with a “bottom” in it Susan first demonstrates how to make a cupcake wrapper using MTC and then shows how to create a bottom to add to it. See also Susan’s blog post with written tutorials with photos found here: susanbluerobot.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/cupcake-wrapper-base-as-seen-webinar-on.html
There are follow-up ?s and answers at the end of the demo
00:43:40 User had a follow-up ? on Susan’s “Pop-up Display card” demonstrated in the 8/14/12 MTC Webinar found here: vimeo.com/47718005 and on Susan’s blog post found here: susanbluerobot.blogspot.com.au/search/label/pop%20up%20cards (see also additional posts on Susan’s blog showing different cards using this technique)
User wanted to know how to create a similar card, but when the inside pieces do not have even edges. Susan gives a demo on creating a similar style card with uneven edges.
00:59:45 Susan demonstrates creating a “word” pop-up card. (Also see follow-up demonstration by Susan for creating a word pop-up card in the 11/06/12 Webinar found here: vimeo.com/53197462 @ the 01:07:45 timestamp.)
01:10:00 End of Susan’s Demo on creating the word pop-up card
01:10:01 Follow-up ?s on Susan’s Demo on creating the word pop-up card
01:15:40 Nan’s request to review the Bezier curve and pencil tools was answered via Susan’s demonstrations above.
01:16:30 Julie does a follow-up on the bag design template from the 10/23/12 Webinar (found here: vimeo.com/52935068 at the 00:00:30 timestamp.) User had wanted to know how to create a similar style bag in MTC using basic shapes.
01:45:45 End of Julie’s Demo on creating the bag from basic shapes (See also follow-up ? later @ timestamp of 02:08:38).
01:45:46 There have been several ?s on the MTC forums lately on how to get images into MTC from different sources from different file types. Julie gives a demonstration on how to get GSD files to a PDF file to then bring into MTC by doing a pixel trace on the PDF file.
See also Julie’s written Tutorial entitled “01_GSD to PDF to MTC” found at the MTC_Tuts Yahoo Group in the Files section in the 06_File Conversion Techniques Folder. groups.yahoo.com/group/MTC_Tuts/files/06_File%20Conversion%20Techniques/ (You do have to be a member of the Yahoo group to access this tutorial, but it is free to join.) Julie’s tutorial also contains the needed links to find the old Robomaster software and the Cute PDF writer software that she uses to make this file conversion from GSD to PDF. The 3D files she references and uses in this demonstration can be found at: graphteccorp.com/craftrobo/things/material.html

02:08:35 End of Julies Demo on converting GSD files to PDF to import into MTC
02:08:38 Follow-up ? on Julie’s earlier template on creating the bag template
02:11:38 Portrait vs. Landscape for your virtual Mat on screen. How to change and when and if it matters which one you are using (for example: if using a cameo, it needs to be in landscape mode due to the way the registration marks work).
02:13:28 Julie gives a very quick demo on how to do a pixel trace of an image that is saved as a .png file
