Frequent question: Can you have more than 250 layers on procreate?

The results are looking very promising with the M1 iPad Pro (8GB RAM) seeing an increase of 200% for a 1,920 x 1,080px canvas, jumping from 250 to 500 layers. Procreate may also see a new maximum resolution, expanding to 16,384 x 8,192px with 3 layers.

Is there a limit on layers in Procreate?

Procreate dynamically calculates the maximum number of layers. The larger your canvas, and/or the higher the DPI, the fewer layers you’ll have to work with. … At 300 DPI that gives me 37 layers to work with (left). If I drop the DPI to 72, then the layer limit goes up to 128 (right).

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.

How big should my Procreate canvas be?

If you’re looking to print out your digital art, the most common Digital canvas size is 4000 x3000 pixels. You can also use any of the standard sizes for Digital printing, like A3 and A4.

How much RAM does Procreate use?

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.

What is the best dpi for Procreate?

300 PPI/DPI is the industry standard for best print quality. Depending on the printed size of your piece and the viewing distance, a lower DPI/PPI willl look acceptably good. I would reccomend no lower than 125 DPI/PPI.
