Using the Procreate App for iPad for animation

So the new version of the Procreate app for iPad has an “export video” function. Take that little video, run it through the Cameo app, and you end up with a fun little hipster movie.

There are some caveats to this method, most notably the lack of a true timeline to go back upon which to make edits. It records what you draw in real time, so any mistakes are visible until you erase/overwrite them, both of which actions are also visible. Personally, I like the rough draft feeling of this style of animation. It doesn’t give as polished a finished product, but as an added feature to an already-amazing illustration app it has the ability to become my favorite digital drawing tool.
