Now we're introducing a momumental change to the heart of Procreate. Built entirely with Metal, our new painting engine – Silica M – allows for incredible new effects and possibilities, but also makes your existing brushes feel more dynamic and responsive. The same goes for the rebuilt Procreate Gallery, which loads your artworks more quickly, allows you to arrange them more easily, and serves as a solid base to build more advanced functionality in future.
Artists will pick up Procreate 4 and find everything is way faster, tools are easier to find and access, and the interface is much more polished. There are beautiful new wet painting effects, pencils and sketching have been completely overhauled, and the improvements to Smudge make the tool almost unrecognisable.
We've implemented Layer Masks to give artists more tools for a non-destructive workflow, P3 Wide Colour for more vibrant palettes, and we're removing all in-app purchases. That means everything Procreate has to offer is included in one purchase. No subscriptions or hidden costs. Plus, if you've ever bought Procreate before, this update is totally free.
