Fresco suddenly very slow

I was part way through drawing using vector pen and suddenly it is super slow.
The lag is crazy. I have to lay down one stroke and wait a second for it to appear before laying another.

It's a portrait of a long haired cat so you can imagine how freaking long this is taking. 
I also noticed the 'fill' function is taking longer and longer, now to the point that I just don't use it and spend the painstaking time drawing it in because it's quicker (thought I'd give fill another go on a small patch and it's been at least 30 minutes) 

I thought maybe the dimensions were too big (a3) and considering it's vector I changed it to a4 and no change. 
I'm not sure what year my iPad is but it's a pro 9.7" running whatever the current update is. Bought my Apple Pencil at the same time so not sure that year either 

 

I'm also not running any other programs and only have the reference image so 2 layers all up. (not a huge file, at a4 it's a little pixelated, just use it for the shape etc) 

 

ive even deleted a bunch of useless stuff in case is was a memory thing 

 

not sure what else to do and haven't found much help via google 

 

ive attached a quick vid of the lag. If I don't wait long enough it thinks that the seperate strokes are one and I get a squiggle instead of seperate lines.

Wow, that video does show a bad lag. I'm not experiencing that on my system, but it feels like it could be associated with space on your system. I'd also consider the internet connection, if you're working online and you have a poor connection this may have a lagging effect.

The internet here is fine, and I'm usually the only one online at the time. 

I'll try deleting more stuff to make space. The first part worked fine and then just got worse and worse.

I'm facing the same issues. Deleted so much stuff. Still facing the lag. So infuriating. I'm on a very tight deadline here. 😞

 

Please let me know if you figure out a fix.

Hi Preet. 

 

Sorry you're experiencing such serious lag. This type of lag is rarely related to storage space (either on the device or in Creative Cloud)  but I  have a couple of quick questions:

 

Is this happening in every drawing? Or is it just one?

Are you using the vector drawing tools?

Are you using the most recent version of  Fresco (v2.0.4)?

 

Please let me know.

 

Sue.

Hi Yakup.

 

On which iPad are you using Fresco? And what size are your canvases?

Hi Yakup. 

 

Sorry for not responding sooner. I've not been able to reproduce this on my first-gen iPad Pro but you should definitely not be experiencing lag with all of your brushes on this size canvas. 

 

Since you mentioned that the problem began with iOS 14.1, have you updated to iOS 14.2 to see if it resolves?

 

Sue.

Hi, I'm having the same problem. I'm drawing with vector tools and trying to fill, something I've done quickly for every day in 2021, but it suddenly is going incredibly slow. To answer Sue's questions: 

 

Is this happening in every drawing? Or is it just one?

- Just this one

Are you using the vector drawing tools?

- Yes, vector, then fill. If I prefer vector, but I even tried converting to a pixel layer, and it left that thin gap between stroke and fill that others have complained about.

Are you using the most recent version of  Fresco (v2.0.4)?

- Using Fresco 2.1.0 on a iPad Pro 12.9 in 2nd generation

No. Same techniques. I’ve done a drawing a day in Fresco this year (so this drawing is #12 for January 12). Let me keep working to see if it comes up again.

Hi Jodie. 

 

A few things:

* There are a number of things that make vector drawings complex: drawing a lot of short meticulous strokes with a hard starting/stopping point, excessive fills, extensive erasing/redrawing, multiple layer merging.

 

* If you're doing more of those things in one drawing than in another, that drawing will be more complex even though it "looks" the same. Try creating a new layer and continue  drawing there to see if it affects the lag you're experiencing.

 

*  The  engineers are working on solutions (they will be rolled out in a number of updates) to eliminate these vector complexities but in the meantime we've added an experimental option to simplify these types of documents. 

Similar to the Simplify command in Illustrator it's designed for use on vector documents that are exhibiting performance problems. It shouldn't have any visible effect on vector artwork (and will have no effect on pixel or image layers); to use it, open the document to simplify, tap the gear icon in the upper nav, then App Settings > Experimental > Simplify.

 

Let me know if any of this helps. 

 

Sue.
