Silhouette How To - Print your image catalogue

My goal was to make a catalogue of my images that I have purchased from the Silhouette Quickutz Store site and then share that video on YouTube. (Arrow down for the links to videos.)

Today I attempted to make a video and used Jing to create an swf or Flash file to capture my screen shots.

  1. I tried to get the swf Flash file into the video editing software but the quality looked poor and no sound followed.
  2. I tried to upload the flash version here on my blog, but that was really slow and I abandoned that idea.
  3. Finally I sprung for the full version of Jing that would export mp4 files. I imported the unedited mp4 Jing files into Sony Vegas 9 but lost the audio again*.
  4. Then I uploaded the unedited mp4 files to YouTube. Those are the links you see here.

*Geek speak I know, but the overall results I am quite happy with even though there are 3 videos, but I hope you find the information valuable.

The Three Videos:


Here is a sample of one pdf page saved as a graphic.

FYI - Click on any of the images and they will likely get bigger in a new window, so you can see better detail.

I love love visuals!!! I was able to follow through the video. One thing, I also have unlimited subscription and currently have over 4000 designs. When I pull up my library in the Silhouette, I show 2 options search and digital designs. I want to set up the folders also but how the heck do you do it?? I click on the design button and have tried right click and nothing please help ... I am very grateful to you for taking the time to do these videos
