The thread for the initial questions covered in this Webinar can be found on the MTC forum here: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/28866/november-27th-webinar-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:01:07 User wanted to know if she could cut StampinUp Glimmer Sheets on her KNK Zing; Bryan referred to this thread by SandyMcC on the MTC Forum: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/28885/knk-zing-settings-during-the-season-of-bling
00:04:37 User wanted to know how to do a pixel trace on a .jpeg without getting the “white line” or box outline on the image. Sample image was provided in Webinar thread. (See also original thread on image here: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/28922/white-line-around-image)
(NOTE: Bryan noted the large size of this file and suggested that you want to use 4.2.0 to handle large graphic files such as this one. If can’t upgrade to 4.2.0, then he suggested reducing the file size if at all possible with an outside image editing software program by resizing and then bringing it into MTC.)
00:27:00 User wanted to know if there was a way to delete files shared on the forum. At time of this Webinar answer was no. HOWEVER, Please note: this has now been fixed and you can delete files you have shared on the forum. Please see this thread by Andy: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/29065/mtc-forum-fixed-attachement-editing
00:28:15 User had a question on why “dashed lines” from another file type not importing into MTC as a dashed line. Bryan explains why this might happen and how to fix it.)
00:35:37 Request to show how to make a “box” with MTC. Bryan noted he was not going to review how to create a “box” in MTC in this Webinar. He noted the “type” of box impacts how to make it. He also noted that several past Webinars have covered making different types of boxes. Finally, he is waiting to see if Rob at ScrappyDew is going to create a tutorial on box making based on thread request on the forum.
00:37:30 Bryan reviews the various functions, buttons, and options in the “Layers Property Box”
01:04:05 User asked Bryan to explain difference between “Texture” and “Bitmap” for a “Print and Cut”. Bryan explains they are the same thing and reviews the “texture” feature.

01:41:00 User had couple of questions on using ECraft with MTC; Trying to “print and cut” – not easily done – no laser alignment or optical eye, hinge method or “cut and print” method only options and neither provide good results; 2nd question was problem with ECraft stopping in the middle of a cut

01:55:27 How to bring in a WPC file into MTC; Bryan refers user to see Julie’s written tutorial, “V1.05_WPC_SCUT2ToPDF_MUTC.pdf,” found in the MTC_Tuts Yaho group found here: groups.yahoo.com/group/MTC_Tuts/files/06_File%20Conversion%20Techniques/ (Basically you export out of the WPC program as an EPS file and then import the EPS file into MTC)
01:57:00 User wanted to know how to make round Christmas Ornaments. Bryan suggested checking prior Webinars where this has been discussed.
