This is from the May 14, 2013 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut!
Make the Cut version 4.6.1 is used for demos in this Webinar
You can find thread on the MTC Forum with questions addressed in this Webinar: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/32480/may-14th-webinar-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00: 58 Julie follows up on the 05/07/13 Webinar and Bryan’s presentation on creating a corner punch design. User wanted to know how to make it so that the corner punch held another sheet of paper like a “photo corner.” (Also see Bryan’s demo on different type of corner punch at 00:32:05 timestamp)
00:17:25 Julie then demonstrates how to take a PDF “pop up” file from this site: wp.robertsabuda.com and make a cutting file in MTC; Also see this thread on the MTC forum where Jana had previously shared her MTC file for this pop-up eagle file here: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/32040/pop-up-eagle-and-file#latest; Also see Melanie’s blog post where she showed the pop-up witch here: melaniescrafting.blogspot.com/2012/01/another-pop-up-card-enhanced-with-color.html (no file shared)
00:30:53 End Julie’s Demo and return to Bryan’s screen
00:32:05 Bryan gives a demo on how he would create a second type of corner punch shape to create a “photo corner” to be able to insert and hold another piece of paper with the corner pieces
00:57:25 Bryan briefly explains that MTC can be run on a linux based machine but it takes a lot of “work” to do that and wouldn’t recommend it as your only way to work with MTC; need to be techy to get it to work right, have to “bridge” your cutter, etc. Recommends you get a program called “Virtual Box” if you are going to try it.
01:04:35 Using a KNK cut file with MTC – you cannot open a KNK cut file if you don’t have the KNK program – if you have the program you can cut and paste into MTC
01:06:15 Rotating a shape seems to change the size of the shape as you rotate – Bryan explains the size shown is the size of the bounding box – not the shape and that as you rotate, the bounding box grows based on the size of the rotation
01:12:36 Bryan explains searching for a file in the MTC Thumbnail viewer
01:16:20 Bryan reviews “vector” PDF file (note: you need a “vector” PDF to import into MTC to create cut lines); if working with a “vector” program and export out as a PDF or print to a PDF file it should create a vector PDF; if it doesn’t create vectors, it will be a “raster” image (but not all vector programs “print” as a vector – for example Silhouette Studio will not print as a vector, it prints as a raster file)
