Procreate may also see a new maximum resolution, expanding to 16,384 x 8,192px with 3 layers. Other canvas resolutions will see increases of: 2,048 x 2,048px from 196 to 246 layers. 4,096 x 4,096px from 46 to 58 layers.
Why can I only have 5 layers on Procreate?
Procreate has layer limits because it needs to accommodate the amount of RAM available to it from the iPad. Procreate cannot allow for an infinite amount of layers while still functioning at the level required for the app to run well.
Why can I only have 7 layers in Procreate?
Why Procreate limits the number of maximum layers
Procreate limits the number of layers based on a few criteria: The amount of RAM in your particular iPad. The size of your canvas, and DPI (Dots Per Inch).
Does Procreate have a frame limit?
Procreate limits the number of animation frames based on the resolution, but the default Square canvas (2048 x 2048 pixels) gives us 124 frames to work with, which is more than enough for a short animation. For something longer, you’d have to work at a lower resolution or in batches.
How much RAM do I need for Procreate?
Luckily, this issue was quickly resolved with a recent patch, but we then learned that the Apple operating system was capping the RAM usage available for individual apps at 5GB. This means that, with Procreate, no additional benefit is gained from a device that has 16GB of RAM instead of 8GB.
How big should my Procreate canvas be?
If you’re using Procreate for your everyday digital art, then a good size to use is 500 PPI at 3.5″ x 5.0″. This canvas size will produce excellent results on mobile devices and Facebook when used with the iOS Digital Art App.
