So far good but updates will probably improve

I’ve run into a couple things so far while using procreate dreams. Something that may be helpful is being able to set a standard new frame length. Another thing is that even if you make a layer not visible with the check box you can still erase that layer even if you can’t see it. I’ve ended up on the wrong layer by accident only to realize I have erased my image by accident. Onion skin is too hidden, it’s in the toner which unless looked up I would not have found. Reading the manual is definitely a must so you know the finger gestures are needed to be able to resize the frames. When resizing frames I have run into the issue that the undo is accepted instead given that the actions both take two fingers for undo or the frame resizing. The three finger gestures seem fine. 4 fingers fine as well. I am still enjoying that app. There are also sum of lower level procreate functions I felt would have moved over like the hold to make a straight line but it doesn’t seem to be there. In a whole it’s definitely a simpler interface but if the lack of procreate features in dreams is meant to make me use procreate and transfer my work then I would just recommend flipaclip if you’re used to tradition animation or toon squid. Procreate dreams is still new however and I still find it very useful and helpful. The perform function has been a real time saver.

Looking forward to future updates

The app works great and feels great to use after the initial learning curve. The focus the developers put on maintaining a clean user workspace makes it seem like many essential features are missing at first glance, but they are just a little hidden. There are some features I would like to see added, which would alleviate the current incompleteness, but given the newness of the app the companies previous track record with procreate I’m sure well see many cool new things in due time if community support continues.

As a side note, I have seen a lot of reviews where buyers of the app are unhappy with its initial design and feature set. In my honest opinion, if these reviews are giving you second thoughts, don’t take them too seriously. There is absolutely a significant learning curve for comfortable use, however many complaints seem to stem from a lack of familiarity with the interface. For the most part, things you want are there, they are just hidden in a quirky way. I don’t use the app as much as I had hoped I would but it still suits it’s pure. I think it’s important to remember that this app is not an Adobe, or Apple, or Microsoft product. It is a passion project made by a small group of people who care about your ability to make art and have a great track record of incremental improvement upon deliberately designed tools. The app is worth every penny in my opinion, I just had to be patient while learning it.

Good, but could be better

I left an earlier review, but I’ve been drawing more and realized a few bad things. First off, you can barely select anything. You can select the whole object in the track, but you can’t select individual layers, which makes things very difficult because sometimes I just want to move a layer to the correct place but cannot unless it is a completely different track, which I don’t always want. Second, there is no shape tool, in procreate holding down the shape makes it perfect, what happened to that? Third, copy and paste, really you just can’t do much with layers that you can in procreate, you can copy and paste a whole frame, but not just a layer. Reference isn’t a option for layers. The main problems are just in the layers, please add selecting for layers. Also, there is the select mode, the options are content and track, but both only select track. I don’t know if this is a glitch or what but.. they are both the track. So please add shape tool, selecting layers, and if possible most things layers have on procreate, alpha lock, reference. It’s just, for 10 more dollars, it seems like it should have the same things procreate has. This app is good for animating, but seems like a bit of a downgrade to procreate drawing wise. But besides like… the drawing process, this app is great! Has many tools to animate easier, anchor points, lots of good things. I just with it had the things I’ve listed above.
