00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:38 Using the Duplicate Tool in MTC (Control-D or EditDuplicate); (Note: once you use the duplicate tool, it will keep last used information, so if you duplicate a large number, when you try to use tool again, it will cause your system to hang; Bryan reviews how best to address and work with the issue)
00:16:22 Bryan demonstrates how to pixel trace an object with multiple images on a black background and remove the individual objects from the black background for a “print and cut” of each image separately; 00:21:10 he then demonstrates just selecting a portion of an image to do a pixel trace of
00:24:33 User asked if “texturize path” only for doing a “print and cut?” In general, probably because that is the only reason you would need the “texture” or image contained within the cut shape; you might use it initially to get the shape on your mat in order to do a “hand trace” using the pencil or Bezier tool within MTC.
00:31:50 User had provided a raster PDF file that she wanted Bryan to show how to bring into MTC and do a pixel trace on (also see timestamp at 01:10:10)
00:55:35 Selecting a font to use for a rhinestone template; first question you need to address is what “look” are you trying to create
01:02:00 Using MTC to create layered stencils for painting with (user wanted to know how to create images to make a “mask” of what she doesn’t want to paint)
01:10:10 Return back to raster PDF file discussion; it has certain security settings on it like being “locked” limits what you can do with it
01:13:10 Bryan reviews how to take an image or design from within MTC, apply registration marks to it and then take the “file” with registration marks to an outside printer service, get the file printed, and then bring the printed copies back home and use MTC to cut out each of the images; Caveats: Keep original MTC project, ensure that you have the registration marks showing in the printed PDF file
01:23:00 Bryan then reviews doing a “print and cut” of an object that does not have registration marks printed on it (for example you have an outside printed material that you want to cut out that you did not originally create in MTC
01:36:32 How to completely turn off “Zing Speak”
