Is there any interest in an iPad/Procreate "round table" after FEGA?

Several weeks ago I approached Rex with the concept of an informal round table discussion following the formal seminars on Monday, following FEGA convention. At that time we were unaware of the impending GRS course being taught by Sam, our "benevolent dictator", on the same subject. I did not want to cause any ill-will, so I've waited until Sam's course was filled to bring this up.

Is anyone interested in a very informal discussion about the iPad Pro/ProCreate uses? I would love to give my thoughts on the more "painterly" use of the program. We could go over any specific questions or problems anyone is having. I will leave the more specific engraving designs, transfers and other engraving related topics to Sam, who is FAR more attuned to this aspect of Procreate.

I just want to share some of my enthusiasm for Procreate and the fun of drawing and painting with this remarkable program.

If anyone is interested, let me know and don't forget to bring your iPad Pro, Apple pencil and Procreate app to Vegas. Even if you don't have the iPad yet, but were considering getting one, come and see what it can do.

Again, don't take this as any competition to Sam's course. As this will be, at most, an hour or two, which cannot compare to the fantastic in-depth program Sam will have at GRS.

I don't have one yet, but I would attend. I have been doing CAD design for over 10 years, and I think this is a very good direction for engraving design.

Mark, I'd like to sit in. It means an extra day so it will depend on what is happening at home. Perhaps Sunday after the show closes?

It's hard to believe that a year has rolled around already :)

Yes, Id be keen. My use of Procreate is very utility and I only use it to pencil draw designs and using the ink pen to create outlines for transfers so I've never explored everything else that you can do with it.

Cheers

I had made the same offer and a few people are interested so one evening after the show sounds good to me. We just need a large enough area with a TV. I can bring an HDMI adapter. Would love to see your painting techniques Mark.

I would like to video the event and get copies of your recorded procreate sessions to put into a DVD for FEGA, if you will agree Mark and Sam.

Well this is getting much bigger than I was anticipating. Van, if you really want to video the session, I'll have to get a bit more organized! In order to video working on an iPad, you will need to have a camera on a tripod above the iPad while the work is being done. That is the only way the audience can really see how gestures and "brush strokes" are applied on the screen and the effects they cause. Simply seeing the drawing appear on a screen does not tell the whole story. Anyway, let me know if it is possible to have a direct video output to a video projector in real time, to show the audience.

Originally I had planned to have this session after lunch on Monday following the regular seminars. If an evening after the days' events are over is better, then I see no reason that it can't be done. It would just mean finding a room with a screen.

p.s. Sorry Van, you were posting as I was typing my reply.

After the regular Seminars will work.
Sam will the HDMI adapter from the iPad to the projector allow the group to see what the artist is doing on screen?

Van and Doc,
Usually after the seminars the folks at GRS like to pack up the equipment they have as it is a TON of work. We will have use of the video projector but not sure about a camera. The projector will have a HDMI input. Perhaps the FEGA video cam can be used after filming to project the user and tablet. Many of them have a HDMI output.

Would it be possible to do it Friday night after the show closes?
Show closes at 5 pm, everyone could break for necessities and dinner.
then meet up at 7 pm for the round table.
I will get us a space if you will have it.
We will have the FEGA video camera, projector and screen we can use.

I believe that'll work, Van.
