The digital illustration software company Procreate is about to make your dreams come true with their latest release: Procreate Dreams. This exciting 2D animation app for iPad is all set to launch on November 22nd, and the best part is, you can snag it for a one-time payment of just $19.99. Yep, you read that right, no pesky subscriptions here!
Procreate Dreams is designed with touch in mind, making it super user-friendly. One standout feature is “Performing,” which lets you add keyframes in real-time with simple gestures, letting you react to your project as it unfolds. It’s like magic for animators! No more tedious frame-by-frame adjustments.
The star of the show, the Multi-touch Timeline, lets you mix and match drawing, cel animation, keyframing, video editing, and compositing seamlessly. And here’s the kicker: it’s all done with gestures that are faster than using your old-school mouse and keyboard.
If you’re a fan of traditional animation, you’ll love the Flipbook tool in Procreate Dreams. It’s designed with a user-friendly interface, just like the Animation Assist feature in Procreate’s original app. This makes it perfect for crafting short looping GIFs, intricate character animations, and more. Plus, the Onion Skins feature lets you see multiple frames simultaneously, making customization a breeze.
Procreate Dreams supports advanced techniques like rotoscoping, where you can import ProRes footage up to a mind-boggling 8K resolution. And there’s a new audio engine too, so you can add character voiceovers, atmospheric music, and other cool sound effects to your animated projects.
If you’re already a Procreate fan, you’ll be thrilled to know that all your favorite brushes from the original app are here and optimized for use with the Apple Pencil. There are larger canvases and more layers too, and it fully supports files created in Procreate. Plus, there’s a special Procreate file format designed for iCloud synchronization. This means you can open a whopping 1TB of files instantly without any annoying loading or exporting. It even keeps your entire undo history, so that you can experiment without fear.
Procreate has a stellar reputation for being the go-to choice for professional artists and hobbyists alike. It played a massive role in making the iPad a beloved tool in the creative world. What sets Procreate apart? Well, while other giants like Adobe and Clip Studio Paint switched to pesky subscription models, Procreate stuck to its guns and kept things simple.
With Procreate Dreams on the horizon, Procreate is set to revolutionize the animation game. Whether you’re a seasoned animator or a newbie with big dreams, this app is about to become your new best friend. As November 22nd draws near, the excitement in the creative community is building, and Procreate’s reputation for excellence only adds to the buzz.
