Streaming Procreate From iPad To Mac

Even without thinking of gaining public views or audience streaming, Procreate from iPad to Mac can help you have access to a bigger screen.

Even more annoying is when you lose track of proportions while zooming in and out so many times.

You cannot deny that the experience of giving life to your imagination is satisfying on a bigger screen.

The bigger the screen, the better the view, and the better the art.

Fun Reminders

If you are new to live streaming altogether, you might be confused about where you should start streaming your art.

Two of the best platforms are YouTube and Twitch.

They have their kind of benefit and you might need to use both, but you should know which one when.

Twitch as a platform is best spent on cultivating and building the relationship with the people who have already found you.

Whereas on YouTube, there are plenty of ways to discover you through recommendation feed and home page.

Using both will be a good idea.

One thing you can be ensured about streaming live art is that you can have the benefit of piracy protection.

When you stream Procreate live on YouTube or Twitch or any other platform, it becomes hard to save a copy of it.

Live streaming Procreate while you are creating your art from your iPad to any other platform also helps you save your time as it is real-time engagement.

There is no headache of waiting for the video to the end, editing, and uploading, it is all instant.

Unlike other forms of streaming, live streaming can be interactive and more fun.

You can interact with your audience, students, or subscribers while you are creating your art.

With live streaming, you also have more control in hand.

Viewers will view you on your time, not on theirs.

Not to miss, it creates a feeling of excitement for your viewers and subscribers who love you and your art.

More Reminders

On YouTube and to some extent in Twitch, you can upload your live streaming as an official video for them who missed your live streaming.

It can help you build your brand, maintain your brand, and make your brand stronger.

It is free – zero cost to start.

Live streaming builds trust among your viewers because now everything is transparent; you cannot cheat; you cannot edit anything.

Your viewers can see the real you which is why they will get more connected.

After live streaming on YouTube, you can filter your real viewers and invite them to your Twitch account where you can build a deeper relationship and connection with them.

Another benefit of live streaming Procreate for your audience is that it is ad-free.

You can still have yourself paid for the time you spend in live streaming your art by charging your viewers like any artist would charge for their live concert.

Final Thoughts

It is not just through YouTube and Twitch where you can live stream your Procreate art.

Learning how to stream Procreate can also be done on any other platform as well.

It is just more fun when you have engaged the audience and viewers and you can see their real-time reaction.

There is transparency between both sides.

The features in all these apps keep getting updated.

Keeping track of those updates is a good idea as they may help you upgrade your app, your skill, and the process and quality of live streaming.

Do not keep doubt in your mind about why you should be streaming your Procreate art.

The world needs you as it needs more are.

Make the change.
