Hi all, i am a freelance illustrator, been ilustrating live during concerts of a well known portuguese singer ( where i illustrate each song using my macbook, wacom tablet, adobe illustrator and a projector/LED screen ) and when i found tagtool ( i came across with the amazing work of fernando sica on youtube ) it was love at first sight and i knew i had to start exploring this new app and it would be my next step professionally since i am truly focused live drawing as my main occupation ( one can dream ). Now few questions!
1: is it possible to connect 2 projectors to 1 ipad/tagtool session so that both projectors are displayed not mirrored but extended? ( dont want the same draw in both projections, instead i want my draw to flow from 1 screen to the other, like if i had 2 monitors next to each other )…if so…what would i need to make this happen!
2: last concert i tried the tagtool for the first time, and i ran into some issues, mainly because it was a gigantic LED screen with a weird format ( wide but much wider than a 16:9 ) and i could not redimention the work place in tagtool, meaning that i only had 2 options, 1 was to draw a circle that would appear as a oval on the screen, not viable obviously, the other was to mentally visualize in the ipad the area that was being projected ( that was much smaller than the square i had on tagtool and i draw with my back turned to teh screen so it was hard to keep checking if what i was drawing was visible to the public or was it being drawn outside of the visible area ) is it possible to adapt the square that represent the outgoing visible area in order to fit the screen that i am connected to?
Now a personal suggestion that i believe that could improve greatly this already amazing tool, like i said i used to work with adobe illustrator and the reason i chose illustrator over photoshop was the fact that i could in Ai draw a filled form without having to manually paint its inside, as i have only 3 or 4 mins max to create my illustration live, speed is very very important, and this little feature could improve the time consumed creating tagtool artworks if we could for example draw a circle and it appeared already filled with the selected color instead of having to paint it manually ( this would also improve the transparency issues when you use it on something that you painted with a lot of strokes, instead of it being a simple shape filled with color ). As i said, the work i do is more about being able to create something in a few minutes that illustrates the song, and not so much creating a massive artwork for 1 or 2 hours…even so, this feature would allow these creators to have more time to spend on other details so its a win win in both cases.
that is all…can’t wait to post some of my work and have your feedback on these points i mentioned
Sorry for my crappy english…did my best!
cheers and THANK YOU for this amazing tool!
