I have a few annoying problems.

Okay, this is a okay app. I’m glad I didn’t have to pay monthly and the brushes and the layering and stuff like that is good but I don’t really recommend using the animation on this app because a layer counts as a frame so it’s really hard to do the animations. I always start with a sketch, then add a layer and do the lineart but in animation, I can’t do that so I really struggle to use it. And also, I wanted to animate a dog walking, so I decided to import my video of my dog walking so I could use it as a reference to help me with this animation. It was a one second video so I thought it would be alright and import perfectly fine. Well, it did import and show a tick which means it did do it, and then it put me on the canvas with the video but you could only see the video for a split second and then it disappears. Why does it do that? I edited the video to make it one second because I thought it may be to long so I made it short! All that time wasted. And two days ago I managed to get a video on perfectly fine but now I can’t a video of my dog in! Why? Please, please fix this! It’s driving me around the bend and it’s stupid. Fix this. Apart from that, good app I recommend it if you want to draw (not animate but it could work for some people but I struggle with it) but yeah it’s worth the price do get it apart from those few things

When creating a new custom canvas, you'll see your Maximum Layer limit when you input your canvas dimensions. You can also access this by swiping left on any custom canvas in the Create menu and tapping Edit. In regards to not importing your video, we have a bug at the moment that is stopping MP4 and GIF imports into Procreate. We are working on a fix for this in an upcoming patch. If you are experiencing other issues, please contact us via and we will get back to you ASAP.

I really enjoy this app, it’s one of the best drawing programs I’ve used.
However I recently started to dabble with the animation feature and I have to say it’s lacking a fair bit and could really do with an overhaul, I’m not a pro animator so I can’t say all that needs improving but one of the biggest things for me that stops it from being great is the layers; having to create folders for each frame so I can do cleans and whatnot is a nightmare and seriously hinders the workflow trying to edit frames, it would be great if it did it automatically and showed multiple layers in folders on the timeline as multiple lines. Another thing would be that there’s no independent onion skins; not being able to set the amount of skins independently for forward and back gets a bit annoying and messy. One more thing, the presets… Come on, who animates at 15 fps? Heathens that’s who, 12 and 24 are the standards, you’re setting up some new animators that aren’t aware with a real bad habit.
Anyway, I don’t think it would take much tinkering with the animation feature for procreate to beat 90% of the other animation apps available and I think it’d definitely be worth it since right now trying to do anything more than a simple 10 second animation is like pulling teeth and it has the potential to be so much better.

Hey AweyMikibish - thank you very much for the review, and for the feedback regarding animation and how we could potentially improve it! It's always important for us to know how we could do better. 🤠
