Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, crafting expert and educator, is a paid consultant of Brother ScanNCut USA.
I hope that this next video clears up any confusion you may have about the differences between “Direct Cut” and “Scan to Cut Data.”
Essentially, “scan to cut data” creates a cut file that can be manipulated and saved while “direct cut” is cutting exactly and only what you see.
Additionally, you can only cut around an image (not inside the loops) with “direct cut,” unless you use my “direct cut” hack.
Hope that helps you get the most out of your machine!
Talk to you next week!
