Hello, I work in film/tv and I like Fresco, especially its brush system which is the strongest thing about it, but there are some suggestions I'd like to see to use it in my regular workflow, and make it more on par with other professional art software.

 

1.)  Layer system.

     A.) Easier Layer Visiblity Toggling- For me this is the biggest thing thats bad about Fresco when on the ipad. Turning layer visibility on and off its such a chore seperating it into 2 clicks, especially when you have a ton of layers. You should be able to click the icon of the layer like photoshop/procreate/other art software to turn visiblity off and on with a single click. They say there is a gesture to turn on and off by double tapping but nothing works for me?

    B.) Selecting Multiple Layers  With a Gesture Method- Currently Fresco seperates selecting multiple layers into 2 clicks. Its ok, you can keep it in a seperate menu like how it is currently but I'd love for you all to take note from other art software and make this easier/more streamlined. In Procreate you can swipe right on multiple layers  to select them very fast/easy. Theres no shame in doing the same approach in Fresco because it works.

   C.) See Full Layer Mode- I would love to be able to see my layers fully with a name like you can in photoshop/procreate/other ipad art software. Maybe even add a color code feature like Photoshop. This would also be great for making Fresco desktop version. Right now its still in Ipad UI when using desktop, and it doesnt really work too well on larger monitors compared to a ipad screen.

 

2.) Other Features

    A.) Flip Horizontal Non Destructively - Like photoshop

    B.) Radial Menu - For Shortcuts and gestures - One of my favorite tools to use in Procreate so I can easily select my favorite brush or    command in a quick swipe rather than going through menus.

   C.) Fix Color Picking on Desktop Version - Currently it doesnt seem to work if I hold Alt like Photoshop.

   D.) Improved Smart Shapes- So I realize Fresco is doing what procreate did with the smart shapes/lines when you make a stroke and hold it for a second, it  can create a perfect straight line. In its current state its very very slow and buggy. Its not as fast a Procreate to recognize when you're holding down  your pen to convert it to a smart stroke. I'd love to see this improved.

   E.) Reference Panel- Similar to Photoshops Navigation Panel/Procreates Reference Panel. A Smaller View of your entire canvas or import reference to see.

 

Thanks for hearing me out. The program keeps getting better every year. Alot of the features I suggested arent radical, just streamlining things into less clicks,  because at the core the program is amazing but these changes would be great for more professional use.
