All good things... The good news is that there aren't two things that will nearly fix most of the major Silhouette CAMEO 3 & Silhouette Studio Version 3 errors, problems, and bugs. However when Silhouette America quickly launched the CAMEO 3 at the end of July of this year, it did have to quickly update the Silhouette Studio program to support the brand new features of their new Silhouette CAMEO 3. When we used both the previous Silhouette Studio and Silhouette CAMEO 3 programs, it seemed like both programs were working fine; however upon launching the latest Silhouette Studio the issue was again apparent; at least for us.
The major change with the Silhouette Studio designer edition software is the fact that now you can use the program on a Mac or PC. Previously the program worked only on PCs; however there have been no major changes with the design tools available on the program itself. In fact the only tool that has been updated is the silhouette tool which now offers two different modes, import/die-cut and export. This change came about because for us, Adobe Illustrator users, the functionality of die cutting was really poor and it just didn't feel right to be able to convert a photo of a person into a silhouette. The silhouette tool is still useful in creating borders, however it's just not quite as powerful as it once was.
The software also included a new type of silhouette called the silhouette machine. With the Silhouette Machine, you can now easily create a very sophisticated silhouette by simply positioning die cuts into a grid, then snapping the photo in place. You can then place your objects of interest in the grid and align them in order to get a nice clean geometric look.
