I’m currently working on my fourth children’s book. It will be a picture book for children from three to five years old. Since I only want to make digital books in the future, I am always looking for ways to make my pictures animated. There are some good animation apps for the iPad and Mac. Unfortunately, they’re all not compatible with Procreate. Since I don’t want to do without the good design possibilities of this app, I have to keep searching.

However, Procreate has a video function with which you can record the course of a drawing and then document it. I simply used this function for a small animation. It’s nothing special and it took only five minutes to have the little raven Franz trudge through the snow.
