While basic Embird program works mostly with stitch files, Studio uses vector objects for easier creation of design. The main concept of digitizing in Studio is to draw vector outlines of respective objects and fill them with various types of stitches in a similar way as you fill object with color in a graphic program.
Studio is an optional plug-in program for Embird embroidery software. It must be downloaded as a separate file and installed (not just copied) into Embird. Embird 2013 is required for Studio trial and/or purchase. Upgrade from previous versions of Studio to version 2013 is free of charge.
