This is from the March 18, 2014 Q&A Webinar for Make The Cut! and Popup Card Studio
Make the Cut version 4.6.1 & Popup Card Studio 1.0.1 is used in this Webinar. Each question notes if MTC or PCS is being discussed.
You can find thread on the MTC Forum with questions addressed in this Webinar: forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/37965/march-18th-webinar-over-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:00:35 PCS: User wanted to know about seeing more information or tutorials on PCS’ 180 degree cards. Users can use that feature now but it is not as “intuitive” and Andy is working on some programming to make easier. There is no timeframe as to when that will be done.
00:02:30 PCS: Bryan shows how to use “Global Operations” to “move” a 3-tiered cake “up” and place a rectangular base under it.
00:09:45 MTC: Bryan discusses the “eraser tool” and the “inverse erase”
00:15:40 MTC: Bryan reviews using the “knife tool”
00:19:02 PCS: Bryan reviews how to cut directly from PCS to your cutting machine (There is some confusion at first as to what was being asked; Bryan first thinks they are asking about “knife cutting in PCS” – there is no “Knife tool” in PCS)
00:23:23 PCS: How to get the cutter “plug-ins” into PCS if you don’t have MTC (Bryan suggests you download the free trial version of MTC and install the plug-ins in MTC and this will give access to them in PCS)
00:24:25 MTC: Bryan reviews node editing (Bryan recommends leaving auto-simplify off until you want to simplify at the end of editing)
00:29:14 MTC: Bryan reviews using the Bezier Tool in hand tracing (the Bezier Tool in PCS works a little different because it is more “standard”)
00:40:47 MTC: Precision of a Print and Cut with a Zing is discussed
00:50:20 MTC: Julie’s Demo on using the Node editing tools including the eraser tool and the different key commands with the eraser tool. Also discusses using the eraser tool to create “stencil” style lettering.
01:12:15 MTC: Bryan resumes the Webinar and shows more about using the eraser tool or other options using break and split and node editing to remove a shape from a connected circle shape.
01:17:30 PCS: Bryan demonstrates how to design a card in a “portrait” style so that your center fold is going from top to bottom rather than left to right
