Today I’m going to teach you guys how to stream procreate on Twitch! This is a little different from streaming other games, but that doesn’t mean it’s hard. If you can draw in Procreate, you can stream it on Twitch! Don’t worry if you don’t have the best computer or internet speed — this article will teach you how to set up a Twitch stream on any computer. Let’s get started!
How to Stream Procreate on Twitch?
The first thing you need to do is make sure you have a Twitch account. If you don’t have one, you can make one for free on the Twitch website. Once you have an account, download the Twitch app on your phone or computer.
The next step is to set up your stream. In order to stream Procreate on Twitch, you need to use either the Elgato Stream Deck or the X-keys XK-16. Both of these devices hook up to your computer and allow you to draw in Procreate without leaving Twitch! I’ll be teaching how to set up both, but first let’s talk about setting up for example with just a keyboard and mouse.
If you just want to stream with a keyboard and mouse, that’s okay! You can still stream Procreate on Twitch as long as your internet is fast enough to support it. Make sure your computer meets the system requirements for Procreate here . This will ensure that you have no trouble streaming or drawing in Procreate at all!
The Top 5 Things To Consider When Streaming Procreate On Twitch
Now that we’ve talked about the basics, let’s talk about some things you need to keep in mind when streaming Procreate on Twitch.
1. Your internet speed is important!
If your internet speed isn’t fast enough, you’re going to have a lot of trouble streaming Procreate on Twitch. Make sure you test your internet speed before you start all of this! You can test your internet speed here .
If your internet is too slow, don’t worry! I’ve got some tips for that below.
2. Your computer needs to support Procreate.
You also need to make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for Procreate here . If it doesn’t, you’re going to have a lot of problems not only streaming Procreate on Twitch, but drawing in it in general!
3. Practice drawing in the game before you start streaming
This ties into number 2 — if your computer can’t support Procreate at all, you need to practice drawing in the game before streaming. This way when people watch your stream they won’t see all the glitches and problems that come with trying to stream a game that your computer can’t handle.
4. Have fun!
This is the most important thing — have fun while you’re streaming! If you’re not enjoying yourself, people are going to be able to tell and they won’t want to watch you. Make sure that when you’re streaming Procreate on Twitch, that you’re having fun!
5. Always test your stream before going live!
This is very important, and I cannot stress this enough. Before you go live with your stream, ALWAYS test it out first to make sure everything is working properly. If not, this will annoy your viewers and they most likely will leave. Don’t let this happen to you!
How To Stream Procreate with the Elgato Stream Deck
If you have an Elgato Stream Deck, this is a really easy way to stream Procreate on Twitch. In order to do so, follow these steps:
Make sure your Elgato Stream Deck is connected and powered on. Launch Procreate and open a new canvas. Make sure your brush settings are how you want them before you start streaming! Once you’re ready, hit the button on your Elgato Stream Deck to bring up the Twitch app. From here, choose which scene you want to go live with!
Streaming Procreate on Twitch is super fun, but it isn’t easy! Make sure you take your time when setting up everything and always test to make sure the stream works before going live.
