Then all you have to do is to create that canvas. AND YOU ARE READY TO GO!

But there are few things you need to keep in mind.

              Make sure your time-lapse feature is on in Procreate

By default, the Procreate time-lapse feature is on. But if you ever disable it, you better activate it.

Maybe you did everything and notice that the time-lapse feature was not open. You are in bad luck. So, if you ever disable it, activate it as soon as possible.

But let’s say you forgot about it. What do you do? How would you know that? It is quite simple. 

When opening the Canvas Custom Setting option for customization, hop over to the time-lapse setting. There are two possibilities: –

  • One, it is the normal interface and you can change it as per your need.
  • Every option is highlighted in blue.

When you can set your time-lapse setting, this means that it is perfectly normal. IT MEANS THAT IT IS ACTIVE!

But if it appears to be blue. Then you know that the “Time-Lapse” feature is disabled in your device and activate it.

Here’s how to do it: –

  1. Go to your iPad settings.
  2. Access to your list of apps.
  3. Scroll to find, “Procreate.”
  4. Check and make sure that, “Disable Time-Lapse” is not on.

Here are some important notes (as a summary): –

  • The quality of the time-lapse video cannot be changed once you have created the canvas.
  • Any video settings that you want are not possible after setting the canvas and start to work.
  • Make sure you activate the “Time-Lapse” feature and set it to default.

              Be careful with your, “Time-Lapse” feature

Yes, it is cool that your process is being recorded to help you in the mere future. But it is not always necessary for me.

This would not be the same case. Take a quick note that the more you use this feature more it will consume your storage.

The quality of the time-lapse varies a lot. But if you go for a 1080p, it would take around 130 MB for a minute.

However, if you are going for a 4K, then it would take around 360 MB for a minute. See the difference! Think of the space it would take!

I would suggest you disable your time-lapse when it is not needed. Or if needed, this is the right time to use your external storage devices at their full capacity!

Making some good time-lapse is all you want, but you need to look after your storage too!

Plus, it is not always storage. It also takes up your juice that is your battery life. This cannot be helped; it only can be reduced.

What you can do is that you can charge your iPad while doing your work.

              What is the significance of time-lapsing a video?

They are a lot to say, let us start easy: –

  • To make any reels or any content for your social media page: – everyone likes a quick 15 seconds video for your entire process. I spend 10 to 15 minutes to see speed-drawing. It is relaxing fun to see at the same time.
  • While your audience is happy with the content you are making, and it makes you happy. Trust me, it is the time you would feel the JOY. Work on what you love and providing value is everything!
  • To make tutorials to help others understand: – again, this genre gives an immense amount of value to others. Take me as an example, I spend a LOT of my time learning.
  • Art is a journey; some are more experienced than others. Sharing your knowledge to help others grow in their unique way.
  • The cool thing about art is that there are NO RULES! I love to see how a group of people are doing the same thing using different methods.
  • Who knows, maybe your DIFFERENT WAY of doing things may inspire others. And they also discover their unique way!

I can go forever speaking about this as people also enjoy want to see speed-drawings! Mainly people when they are in a rush! Watching different time-lapses also helps artists to understand that person reached the result.

ENJOY THE PROCESS!
