This is Part 4a of a multi-part series. This video shows the importance of analizing an existing design to understand how elements in an embroidery design contribute to the look-and-feel of a completed design.
Note: The image used in the video, and the finished design (VP4 format) as well as the EDO working file, are available in the Samples folder of the program, at these locations on your computer disk drive:
- The VP4 file: C:\Documents\Premier+\Samples\Create\Stitch\
- The EDO file: C:\Documents\Premier+\Samples\Create\Edo
- The image used to create the design: C:\Documents\Premier+\Samples\Create\Pics
Over the next several episodes we will learn to digitize the sled, or an image of your choosing, using all the tools available to us in the Quick Create, Freehand Create, and Precise Create tabs of the Create module. We will learn the importance of learning how to “layer” all the components, to suggest a 3-D design; and how to use fills and border lines to highlight specific elements in the design.
How do we approach the creation of a new design?
In this video I attempt to show how studying an existing design will help us formulate a way to create from a new one from scratch, using only the manual digitizing tools. In other words, starting with this episode we will abandon the automated tools we learned in the earlier episodes. No more automation from here on, although we can still use the Wizard(s) to generate a raw embroidery design we can embellish.
NOTE: There is one video embedded in this post.
