PROCREATE 5.2 IS COMING!
I’ve been invited by Procreate to test their brand new baby, Procreate 5.2! It still needs work before the launch somewhere in 2022 (I believe), but boy, this new update is so exciting! Everyone is very psyched about the new 3D features that Procreate 5.2 will offer, but that’s definitely not all that the new update will offer. Here’s a little overview of the most exciting new features that you can expect.
Procreate 5.2 will allow you to paint on 3D objects in the app. You can import your own objects from apps like Forger for instance. Or you can just play around with the standard set of objects that Procreate offers you. Painting on these objects feels very intuitive, just like everything in Procreate I guess. You can rotate the object and zoom in easily. You can’t just paint with color on the object, but you can also alter the texture by tapping the little box shape next to the layer name. It’ll open up three layers, one for colour, one for roughness and one for metallic. That way you can adjust how rough or shiny your object looks. These layers work a bit like layer masks, so you can add roughness or metallicness (is that even a word?) by painting on them with white and remove it by painting with black.
By tapping Environment, you can even change the entire environment your object is in. For now you can choose between scenes like studio, auditorium, nightlife, beach and more. The scene will be best visible when your object is shiny and reflective.
