Vcarve inlay Issues

Has anyone got A vcarve inlay to work?
I tried this method A simple way to make inlays - Vectric Customer but faced some issues
It says to lower the start depth of the inlay. If I do this the bit is cutting far to deep for the xcarve to handle. Anyone have any tried and true methods?

I have not tried this yet. However when I do my plan is to cut the inlay at 0 start depth first. Then run it again at the deeper setting before removing from the machine.
