Video Recording

Everything in the app is great and I even purchased the pro version to save my work files. I only have one problem that I don’t know the root of; the “Video Recording” option stopped working entirely for some reason. It was just fine and I didn’t even use it until later on when I found it through all the settings. I recorded my first sketches with it and had no problems but after one of the updates it stopped working.

Now there are red letters that tell me to close the app and refresh in order to use the option or change it, but I already tried that so many times and it doesn’t do anything. It got mildly frustrating because I didn’t have any other problems within the app previously and was loving it so far, so I can’t figure out why it’s just that option that seems to not want to work. Since I bought the Pro version, I was hoping that the recording option was like a week trial thing and that I would be able to use it again with no problems after purchasing the Pro version but nothing changed.

I’ll be saving all my files on the app and delete and reinstall to see if that will fix the problem. I didn’t want to try that before buying the Pro version because I wasn’t sure if it would save my works like some other apps would and didn’t want to risk losing all my stuff because of it, at least now I can save and transfer my files in case that happens and continue where I left off.

Animation layers

I have been using this app since November of last year, and this is one of the most enjoyable art programs I have been able to use. There are a wide variety of brushes that are very fun to use and experiment with, the blur tool in the program works very well with rendering, adding a softer edge exactly where you need it without having to spend as much time on it, the program has almost everything an art program should.

I have an issue regarding the animation feature of the programs, I do appreciate having the feature in general, no other free programs I’ve seen have it, but the three layers(bottom layers, frames, top layers), only one of them allows animation. I’m aware there’s other layers under the frame option, though that comes into play with onion skin. You cannot have an open layer for moving backgrounds if you are going to animate a character, the onion skin just blocks seeing the previous frames.

This makes things difficult, wanting to experiment with animation, weight and having characters grounded in an environment, it is a fundamental of animation, and this program doesn’t allow an easy way to do that. I would appreciate it if you took the animation features layers into consideration, I adore this program to bits. Thank you so much for reading this!

Super good game😊👏🏻😄Better than procreate

This game has been a really fun way that I can draw on and be inspired. I love this app and it’s even better than procreate procreate you have to spend at least $10 or more for stuff this game everything is free I wouldn’t even consider a game I would consider it something a real artist would use I know a lot of Youtubers use procreate for their artThis is just another step up from procreate and everything is free there’s basically zero ads which one thing I hate about games is all the ads there’s always a 1 million ads in them I art book provides so many good things and a couple of things that procreate doesn’t one thing that I like aboutThis game is that it provides you a lot of stuff you could add detail and texture you could do different kinds of gradients and different blends also one thing that this has that procreate does not have is that you could insert pictures of things. Overall I think this is a really good game and if you want to improve our skills I think you should use this one difficult thing on this though is I don’t know if you guys can but I can’t figure out how to use the animation thing and add another slide or whatever but if you wanna improve your art skills and have a little more creativity and stuff I wouldDefinitely recommend this game to you. Overall amazing game and you should download it five star rating for me.!
