This is from the April 22, 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/38450/april-22nd-webinar-getting-ready-to-go-what-questions-or-topics-do-you-have
00:00:00 Welcoming Remarks
00:01:08 MTC: Julie shows how she created a special sized envelope; by first creating a template from here: templatemaker.nl. The file created by the template maker site is a PDF file. Julie shows how to bring a PDF file into MTC to create a cutting file from it. She then shows a couple of other template files from the site.
00:24:25 MTC: Julie then shows how she pulled in a hexagon box template from the same site and used it to create a lantern box for a gift. She shows how she added “windows” to the box and used acetate to cover the “windows.” Then she showed how she added “flowers” to the window areas. She used a 6 pointed star to create her “flower shape.”
00:42:07 PCS and MTC: user initially indicated that she was having trouble importing from the PCS and MTC “Gallery”. (The online galleries in PCS and MTC are user provided files to share with others.) Bryan noted that if she is referring to the actual “gallery” – that gallery is not yet available for finding files. Then she said that she meant the “basic shapes” of PCS and MTC and if she tries to double-click on the shape, it will not put it on the PCS or MTC virtual mat on screen. Bryan indicates he will need to work with the user off-line to figure out the issue. They also suggest that the user check her mouse settings to see if double clicking is turned off, set too fast, too slow but user indicated that it worked in other programs.
00:51:47 Webinars in general – Bryan addressed question regarding registering for a webinar or not
00:53:08 MTC: Bryan shows how he would create a lampshade based on the image and sizing provided in the thread. He discusses whether or not conical warp would be used or not to create something similar. NOTE: it’s important to remember when using conical warp the top number has to be larger then the bottom number. If it’s not, you may crash your computer. If you need the opposite, you will need to work “upside down.”
01:13:50 MTC: Bryan then attempts to bring in the basic shape of the lampshade from tracing it in from the image supplied and explains why that might not work or additional work that would need to be done for it to work
01:20:05 MTC: Bryan explains how to copy and paste an image from one file into another file. He explains the difference between “paste” and “paste in place.” He then addresses saving shapes into “your basic shapes.”
01:26:35 MTC: Bryan shows how he would create an necklace “holder” card with a circle hole at the top versus a keyhole like the sample shown. He uses basic shapes in MTC to create a similar item.
01:43:48 MTC: Bryan addresses a question regarding whether or not MTC will run on Ipads or Android Tablets. It will not run on either of those directly. You can have a “tablet” that runs full blown version of windows like a surface pro 2. It will not work with any tablet running a limited or “RT” version of windows. Some people use a “remote app” from their Ipads and Android tablets to run their MTC program on their actual computer. It is still running on their actual computer however.
01:47:32 MTC: Bryan explains how to change the color of images in general and then how to create a “custom color” in a file but notes that it is only good in that file its self. He then explains how to save sample colors in a file you save in basic shapes. He uses a sample template of StampinUp colors created by Okieladybug. (Also see prior examples shown in February 18, 2014 Webinar at timestamp 01:29:00).
