Ratings and Reviews
Love this!! But one major thing
Edit2: oct 15,2018 - I have csp ex on my Mac and had some animations I wanted to carry over to work on the iPad. The iPad version cannot handle all the features that the desktop has? So I couldn’t touch my file on the iPad... what a downer.. 3/5
Edit: so I found how to do it! Lol, wow, so I’ll share it in case you’re like me. You can go to file>import>from photo library. For some reason I overlooked that. So I changed my rating to 5/5
I use this program on my Mac as well, so I’m used to it. This is my main program to animate (I’m an animation student) so I’m so happy that I could animate just as well as on the desktop version!! There’s one major downfall to this and it is that I cannot open any files from the iPad’s “photos”! I want to be able to open up psd files that wasn’t initially created in csp. I’ve been playing around with it for awhile but I can’t seem to find a way to do that (if there is a way). I tried importing too but no luck. This is super important to me and if this feature were there, I would give this a 6 star if I could (so a 5 would suffice). I just love this so much! I don’t think $9 a month is unreasonable, but I also wish there was a year subscription like how some apps have! Thanks csp! I really hope this will be a feature in the near near future!! 4/5
Clip studio is great, BUuuut there's one problem thats stopping this to be a 5 star review
I've been a clip studio user for about 6 months now and I really like it a lot, I have created so much artworks in the span of those months and I use it a lot when my iPad storage is nearly full because it takes the iCloud storage instead which is really handy. Overtime I have encountered a few problems here and there but they were never really big for me to say screw clip studio, u n t i l t h i s o n e. Everytime when I draw something that I really like it doesn't freakin save. I know it's on me because I forget to save the file sometimes but autosave is a thing and it's not working. I had so many layers worth of work that I really liked and a I thought that clip studio saved it automatically so I went to bed, and when I woke up this morning I found out that it did not save 7 layers worth of stuff. SEVEN!!! That took me like at least two hours so how come it didn't save automatically??? This is like the 10th time and I thought that the bug was fixed. B uT, other than that, it's a pretty decent program and I do recommend it if you can afford it, just please everyone, remember to save Everytime you exit the app or you'll end up grieving over something stupid like i just did.
Thank you and goodnight ✌️
Wish it could be better
I personally kind of understand the monthly subscription considering how much the actual programs are, but as you can see, not many people here are fans of the subscription and u myself would have to agree on that term. It drives people away and is much more convenient to pay only once, but I don’t want you as a company to start giving out your product almost 1/4 of how it should be really priced. The program itself holds many of the some features as the original but I do hope you can be able to program short cut keys for people who have Bluetooth keyboards. I’m happy that you have an opportunity to import brushes from the website but of course, it’s only under the subscription of the app. My only concern is that some of the windows feel unnecessary and just decrease my window for drawing, as I mainly only need to see my brushes, layers, and the color wheel when drawing. I do hope there is a compromise for a reasonable 1 time pay price because after using this program for quite a while, I’ve grown to love it and hopefully, I can love this in app form too.
