Webinar Recordings [Updated 07/20/2011]

Hi Everyone!

Well, these Webinars have been pretty successful so far!

I am working out a schedule for future webinars -- I want to do at least 2-3 a month from here on out. And the offer still stands if anyone wants to run one.

I decided not to edit the video that was recorded. It would take too much time. So I just uploaded all of them as-is.

If anyone wants to edit the videos, take pieces out which are important, upload parts to youtube, etc -- you have free reign over the content.

03/25/2010 - 1st webinar run by Andy (Import a coloring page and split it in to layers)

It is recommended that you download the files to your computer first, and then open them in Windows Media Player. To download the files, right click on the link of the webinar you want to download, and choose "Save Target As..." (Internet Explorer) or "Save Link As..." (Firefox). Choose where you want to save the file to, and then click on the "Save" button.

Again, thank you to EVERYONE that hung out and listened to us!

    Thanks for making these webinars available Andy!

    ******************** NOTE ******************************
    On the 2010-05-04 - 1st May Webinar.wmv webinar (the 5/4/2010 link above), the screen will remain unchanged during (approximately) the first 7 minutes and 40 seconds. You will hear the sound, but the screen does not change. There is nothing wrong with your computer or the download - we experienced technical difficulties at the beginning of the webinar. We will get better at this as time goes on.

    Andy, thanks so much. The recorded webinars are awesome. I have had my MTC for 4 months now and have yet to use it, its not your software for sure it is my lack of extra time to learn a piece of software. I have had a Gypsy since December and have not used that either so you shouldn't feel bad. But these will make it much easier for me to get to using my MTC. Thanks so much for taking the time to do these!! Great idea and I just know this a great piece of software.

    Thanks Andy, Bryan and Julie! I REALLY appreciate having these tools to better learn MTC!

    Yes, you can use the buttons at the bottom of the Windows Media Player screen. Fast Forward while the video is playing. Try saving the video to your computer first, then playing it.

  • AndyAndy Administrator Posts: 4,579
    OK -- the main post has been updated to include Julie's April webinar -- we split it into 2 parts because of the length.

    Thanks to Bryan for spending all of that time splitting, converting and uploading! You saved me tons of work!

    Thank you so much for the April webinars. I know they will be awesome, Julie is a great teacher and very generous with her knowledge. I love, love, love this program and can't wait to see what you come up with next. I wish you much success and happiness.

    Thanks so much for the Webinars! Is anyone else having a problem with Part 2 of Julie's April Webinar?

    Edited to add: I have sound for the first 34-35 seconds, then it just quits. MTC screen is showing, but not movement. Hmmm? And I do not have the sound on the video or my PC muted.
  • goCricutgogoCricutgo Member Posts: 83
    Thanks so much for all your hard work Bryan and Andy. Know what I'm doing this afternoon!!!

  • juliefes_ID1966juliefes_ID1966 Member Posts: 340
    Right click on the link, and select Save Target As or Save Link As. You need to save the videos to your computer, then run them from your computer. They are too long to view online.
  • carterbkcarterbk Member Posts: 116
    Thank you so much guys and gals. We all appreciate all the hard work you do.
  • TamTam Member Posts: 1,523
    I downloaded all of the tuts last night and am taking them with me to the lake. No internet service down there, and I'm thrilled to be able to learn and watch. Thanks for all who had a hand in these.
  • chateechatee Member Posts: 72
    I downloaded the links to my computer to watch later. I also downloaded the PDF tuts from yahoo MTC tuts group. I saved them to my SD card so I could read them on my Sony book reader. :)
  • lafreilafrei Member Posts: 206

    Watched was dis appointed that she mention short commings and yes we know it is still new but if you do a webinar at least keep unkindly feelings about the program to yourself. Andy is working very hard to get everything into the program and it does take time heck he give free upgrades never a need to buy more where other charge for each new version I think thet if a person does a webinar it should be done for the good not pointing out what it does not have yet. This Is my opion

    I did not notice anything detrimental said about MTC other than the program was in its infancy and that Andy was working on an upgrade. There were several praises for the program, though.
    I applaud Julie and Bryan for taking the time to share their knowledge and Andy for the program, the webinars, and the recorded versions of the webinars for those who are unable to attend the live ones.
    Thanks guys!!!!!!!

    had no idea, wish there was a little more notice.

    Sorry for the late notice. Someone had a question on this topic, and it was much easier to explain the process via video. If you were not able make it, be sure to see the recording after it is posted. Look for it in the first message of this thread.

    I announce all of the Webinars by Special Notice in the MTC_Tuts group.
    If you are not in that group, and would like to receive e-mail notification of the upcoming Webinars, you might like to join there. If you are a member there, and have selected the Web Only option, you may want to switch that to Special Notices so you will receive messages when new tutorials or Webinar information are posted.

    The Webinars are also announced here in the Forum.

    I realize that because of the late notice, some may not have received the message in time to get into the Webinar. We are working on streamlining the scheduling process for future Webinars. Thanks for your patience.

    We know that many people will not be able to attend any given Webinar due to schedule conflicts, so we are thrilled that they are being recorded and made available here, thanks to Bryan and Andy. Thanks, Guys! We look forward to having the May 18 Webinar uploaded soon.
