We have had quite a few questions regarding our Making things clear class video, and I would like to, well, make things clear.
This video is about Embird Digitizing software – and it is a helpful video for everyone out there. It covers some basic ideas as well as some more advanced ideas. It its a compilation of questions frequently asked on our website, via email and on our Facebook group “embird happy digitizing” (where we discuss and post work from the classes). We are around to answer your questions, but we thought a video that answered the questions, and SHOWED you the answers would be very helpful. So that is exactly what we did!
Some of the highlights of the videos include the differences between a stitch file and a native EOF file – a file that you created from scratch in Studio – and why you can’t bring in a PES file into studio and expect it to work like a native EOF file.
We talk about pull compensation – what it is – a few examples – and how to properly use pull compensation, including using underlay.
We talk about density – when to change the density and when to leave the density where it is, and why messing with it can make a mess of your work.
We talk about hole cutting, and common mistakes that can be made with hole cutting – why you may get errors with your work, and exactly how to fix them.
We have tried to answer your questions and show you the answers – by the time you finish the video, you will have a clear understanding on these subjects- using examples and showing you clearly why some techniques don’t work very well, and how to avoid having issues with your work.
Enjoy this video and pick up on all the information that it offers. Coming up this week, class number 8 – its going to be a cool appliqué class with lots of detail work. Class is set for release on Wednesday, March 23, 2016. You won’t want to miss either of these classes.
You can find Class Number 7 at OMLdigitizing.com
New video just released: Making things clear. This video is rated E for everyone! In this video, we talk about things that people wonder about: pull compensation, correctly making holes, density issues and how to change the density and why and some common mistakes when using stitch files and .EOF files. If you want to understand these items and more, then this is the video for you! I show you examples of pull compensation issues and explain how pull comp works and how to avoid issues. I explain with examples how to properly cut holes and how to make them work properly. I talk quite a bit about density and how to change density and what the number actually mean, plus so much more.
This video will answer many of the questions that digitizers have, and will explain how everything works. If you want answers, this is your video!
Hey everyone! Hope your digitizing is going well and you are having lots of fun learning Embird and playing with the program!
I just wanted to post a quick reminder about the difference between stitch files and EOF files, so everyone can have nice stitch outs and avoid any digitizing hassles.
Stitch files: OK, i could copy and paste a nice definition of what exactly a stitch file is, but I think putting it in normal words would be better. A stitch file is the “final” stitch file that you can use to send to your machine. Your machine will only understand one basic stitch file – for example .PES. I called the stitch file “final” because it is basically in the format to send to your machine – the right size, the right colors etc. You can make some small changes to the stitch file in Editor AND studio, but only small changes – for example, you can make a 10% size enlargement and have no issues with density or stitch coverage.
OK, so one of the major misconceptions is that if you take a stitch file and use the drop down list that says “edit stitch file in studio” and make some edits in studio and save over it as an EOF file, that makes it an EOF file, so you can edit it like you would a native EOF file.
The stitch file is ALWAYS A STITCH FILE, no matter where you edit it. Just because you bring it into Studio, or even call it an EOF file, it is still a stitch file. The only fully editable files are native EOF files – the ones you created from scratch in Studio. So even if you bring the PES file into studio, it is still a stitch file, and all Editor Stitch file rules still apply.
Hope that helps everyone understand what you can and cannot do with a stitch file and the difference between a true EOF file and a stitch file in Studio.
Continuing on from the first video – an introduction to Embird Part 2. In this video we explain all of the tools in Embird Studio and how they work! You should be able to play around with Embird and get to know what you can do with the program at the end of this video.
