What’s New

Version 5.3.10

Say hello to the exciting new features for Apple Pencil Pro in Procreate.

Apple Pencil Pro with Procreate unlocks new ways to customise your favourite brushes, introducing new possibilities for your workflow. This update releases support for barrel roll, squeeze and haptic feedback.

Brush Settings for barrel roll
Barrel roll supercharges Procreate brushes in Brush Studio, providing a new way to control shape rotation, stroke jitter, colour dynamics, grain rotation, size, opacity and more. You can add barrel roll to many other settings in the Apple Pencil tab, or by tapping the numeric entry button on the slider and switching on barrel roll.

Hover over your canvas and squeeze to select the layer you wish to work on, speeding up navigation on even the most complex projects. Squeeze to pick colours with Eyedropper or use QuickMenu to activate shortcuts without ever touching the screen. Assign squeeze to custom actions with Actions → Prefs → Gesture controls.

Haptic feedback
Haptic feedback provides a more tactile experience when making selection masks, transforming layers, using ColorDrop, drawing QuickShapes and more. Try turning on Snapping on the Transform toolbar to feel the layer snap to the canvas edges.

Liquify Twirl with barrel roll
You now have full control over rotation in Liquify Twirl. Twist the Apple Pencil Pro back and forth to bend your layers exactly how you want them.

Really good

I think procreate works well for me and I don’t think there’s anything majorly wrong with it. The new colour drop feature definitely speeds things up. Animating in Procreate is easier than animating in some actual animation apps (Or maybe just the one I used don’t get animation desk it’s so bad) but the only thing I have with Procreate is I’ve used sketches school and there’s this tool (The cutter) that when you draw a circle or any other shape that joins together you can move anything within that shape around your drawing. It’s the exact same thing as the mouse in that bar at the top of your screen but it works for the area you choose and not being stuck with just moving the whole frame. I don’t know if implementing that would be considered plagiarism or not but if it would be then could you add the same thing but instead of moving it around you just get the option of adding it to another frame or making a new frame out of the drawings within the shape (Exact same size it would be bad if it expanded the whole screen). It would make drawing on the wrong layer (One of the worst things about digital drawing) SO much more manageable.

Amazing app! Definitely worth it!

I have only been using this app for less than a year, but it's been amazing the whole time!
Starting off, I was terrified that the price was like a subscription at first, but then I found out it was only a one time pay, which is great for my convenience! I heard about it, and when I heard it included art AND animation, I just had to get it! It has heaps of features, and all the brushes are great to use. Even though everything is great and awesome quality, there's a little bit of critical feedback I'd like to give as well (all though I don't think it should take down a single star!). With the animation, I feel as if it would be nice to add an audio feature. I understand why you wouldn't add it in or anything, the app already has a lot of options. But I'd say a lot more people would buy it if it had audio in the animations! That's the only reason I switch to FlipaClip in animation. One more thing is the fill bucket. I enjoy how fancy it is, and how much easier it is the fill a specific spot. But in some ways I believe the traditional
"tap to fill" bucket works better. But I don't think that really matters, since the whole app is amazing anyway. I used to use ibisPaint, a free drawing app, and I can say that ever since I got Procreate I only made my digital art there. So many things I love about this app, and I'm overall so happy that I bought it!
