i used the search but haven't found any topic on this:

a few days back i got the notification from adobe illustrator draw, that i should upgrade to fresco and so i did.

sadly i just found out that in fresco my apple pencil got a mentionable delay which i never experienced on adobe draw before. for that i think the setup isn't suitable for me and i wanted to ask if there are other users experience the same problem or get feedback on how to reduce the delay to adobe illustrator draw standards.

Hi Insel. 

 

Are you on a first-generation iPad Pro? I am and I experience a delay but only when drawing with the Basic Round vector brush. The other vector brushes are fine. 

 

Is your experience similar? And what device are you on?

 

Sue.

Hi Sue, i've got the latest generation (bought it a few weeks ago) and i'm also using the round vector brush, which is - as i think - the perfect stroke quality i want to use.

Hi Sue, i just wanted to let you know: the problem is the smoothening process itself. the higher this value, the more delay i get into my strokes. i'm not really sure why this is though because in adobe illustrator draw i got smoothening of my strokes too without a delay.

Thanks Insel. I had heard this about the raster brushes but not the vector brushes (and hadn't noticed it myself; although I mostly keep smoothing off). So are you able to acceptably eliminate the delay by changing the smoothing setting?

Hi Sue, sadly not, i'm used to the smoothing settings from adobe illustrator draw and with this issue fresco isn't usable for me.

i'm not really sure why this is so different between those two apps since the functionality is basically the same.... except the delay which isn't really there on adobe illustrator draw.

Insel. I don't have a solution for you right now, and I'm not certain at what point the stroke behavior will change, but I wanted to at least let you know that there is a team looking at the smoothing of vector brushes.

Its the smoothing issue.  Its an issue I've seen not just with Fresco,  but with almost every drawing and painting app, be it Clip Studio, PS, or Procreate.  The higher the smoothing is on,  the more its going to lag things down

Hi,

 

I too am having these issues with my Apple Pencil and Fresco. I'm on a 1st generation iPad Pro 12.9 inch and completely love Adobe Draw. But I too am experiencing lag issues with the vector brushes (as mentioned elsewhere in this thread it's mostly the basic round vector brush and any time I turn the smoothing up). Bit of a bummer as I've not experienced that issue in other drawing apps even with it being a 1st generation tablet. 

thanks

-Paul

Paul. 

 

The engineers are looking into this lag when using vector brushes to try to determine what's causing it (beyond a high smoothing setting).

 

Sue.

Hi,

I just bought an iad pro with apple pencil 2, I was so upset that I experience delay with pixel brush not vector brush. Even change smooth is not helping. Does anyone has this problem? Thanks for advice.

i am facing the same issue with pixel brushes too and also found they need more pressure than other kinds of brushes and uh that kinda disrupts the flow of the paint

I'm wondering if this issue has been resolved. I'm experiencing the lag with vector brushes as well. It just started last week with the round  vector brush and now the vector taper brush. I will attempt to see about adjusting the smoothing.

Hi there - I'm having the same lag issue with vector brushes but with a surface pro and the most recent surface pen. Just wondering if adobe has any updates on this. Thanks!

I'm also having this issue on an iPad 8. Gen with apple pencil, I see this has been around for a few years now, is there an update on this?

I've just installed an update to Fresco this morning. I've tried different vector brushes, different settings, but without the smoothing there's really no point in using the app, it's a necessity for me.

I have been having issues too, not just with vector brushes but with the eraser tool as well. It doesn't seem to matter which settings that I change, I still experience severe lag. This is a recent issue as I haven't noticed it before working on my latest project. Which is a bummer because it is really slowing down my process.
