Procreate 1.7 has undergone some awesome interface improvements. One of the big changes is the all new fullscreen interface! Now you can use every inch of the iPad screen for your work, and the entire interface has a beautiful new semi-transparent finish.
No more distractions.
With a quick 3 finger tap the interface will disappear leaving you alone with your artwork. Another quick 3 finger tap and it’s back. Easy and fast.
Keep watching for more posts, we still have lots to show!
You asked for a sneak peek into 1.7, so here’s the first!
With 1.7, you can now create any canvas size you want. The calculator-like keypad makes entering exact canvas sizes really easy.
Oh, and ’124 layers’ is no typo. The limit of 16 layers is now officially gone, in place of a new, efficient layer system! The new system now gives you as many layers as your iPad can fit! And, its all handled automatically. Just enter in your desired size, and Procreate will tell you exactly how many layers your device can do. Shown above is an iPad 3′s limit of 124 layers for a 1024x768px canvas. So how about retina devices at native resolution (2048x1536px)? Up from 16 layers to 28!
As we all await the big day of release, we will keep releasing classified and other unseen features. Keep watching for more posts!
Procreate 1.6.3 was just submitted to Apple! This point release has been under intense development to fix that nasty interpolation (blurring) bug, which was accidentally introduced into the last update.
Because we felt pretty bad for letting this bug slip through, we’d like to make it up to you guys by including Dropbox support ahead of schedule. You will now be able to import images from Dropbox, export images to Dropbox and even import images files into your custom brushes!
Procreate 1.6.3 will also ship with the latest Jot Touch SDK, and a whole new ‘Devices’ section for Pressure sensitive accessories. Its a neat little panel which houses easy on / off switches and status links, indicating stylus connection.
With the new Jot SDK, you’ll also see some slight improvements–namely the ability to control line width or opacity by enabling or disabling the ‘Glazed’ option. Below you can see line width dynamically adjusted by Jot Touch pressure.
Today, you are seeing basic support for pressure sensitive hardware from us. We believe pressure sensitive input is a must for the creative iPad customer. And thats why you’ll see us supporting more pressure sensitive hardware in the future. And it’s important to note, Procreate 1.6.3 is not our answer to how we think software should interface with pressure sensitive hardware. You’ll be seeing that, in our next major release–Procreate 1.7.
Apple have finally approved the critical 1.6.1 update! This update is recommended for all users–especially if you’ve been experiencing instability issues. And one more thing–you can now copy & paste layers!
Also, help us keep Procreate development alive by updating your iTunes review! If you haven’t yet reviewed Procreate, we would be so grateful if you could take a few seconds to tell others what you think of Procreate on the AppStore.
Thanks for being so patient guys. This update should make life a little easier!
