I used 3 different software to digitize the same artwork as an auto punch design. Can you tell the difference? The first program I tried was Digitize N Stitch by Amazing Designs. For $199.00 this stand alone program did a great job. I have a video at You Tube to show how the Digitize N Stitch works. I have posted the design for you to download and try. The Digitize N Stitch software is free to trial download and try.
The second softwareI used to make a cornacopia design I am very familiar with. I used the autopunch option from the Futura. I do have the option in both the Futura and the Amazing Designs program to edit the artwork. The results are out standing.
The 3rd software is the Design Center in PE Design Version 8. I used a trial version of the Brother software to digitize the design although I could not save it. Jenny’s Sewing Studio is becoming a Brother dealer and we will offer the PE Design lite. This is a moderately priced software package for the Brother machine that will digitize, edit and comes with the card reader. I prepared a quick demonstration to show you how the software works to digitize.
Individuals who only want extensive editing capabilities – or those who want an informative step toward digitizing – will find what they seek in this compact version of Brother’s cutting-edge digitizing software: PE-DESIGN® Lite.
