Procreate for iPad adds Photoshop PSD import, screen capture/live streaming, keyboard shortcuts and more
The artistic drawing and painting tool for iPad, Procreate available for $5.99 in the App Store, is rounding out 2016 with one last update in time for the holiday season where countless numbers of iPad Pros and Apple Pencils will be unwrapped for Christmas.The Procreate 3.2 update includes several major new features, including PSD import for bringing Photoshop documents into the app, Live Capture Streaming to broadcast the creative process, support for a range of iOS keyboard shortcuts, new layers system with nested groups amongst other changes.For professionals, PSD import fills a big hole in the iPad creation workflow allowing users to bring in their Photoshop projects from the desktop, and continue editing on the tablet with Procreate. Importing a PSD file preserves layers, groupings and blend modes for a seamless transition.Another headline feature is the addition of screen capture and live broadcast. Procreate now allows users to record the screencap of themselves making a masterpiece. It uses the native system screen recording APIs to capture a high-framerate video of the entire iPad screen, optionally including voice narration. This file can then be saved and shared using the system share sheet.With iOS 10, Apple extended the screencap framework with a Live Streaming service. This allows apps to send their video in realtime to a live streaming website, in just a couple of taps. The feature is primarily intended for streaming mobile gaming but Procreate is employing it for broadcasting creative work too. Porcreate includes an option to add a Picture-In-Picture feed of the FaceTime camera too in addition to the drawing canvas.
