Hi Everbody,
i know some of you badly want Rebelle on the iPad ;-).
Until, this is happens, try "EasyCanvas".

"EasyCanvas" is an App like Astropad or DuetDisplay.
it works on PC and Macs, but i can only tell you how it
works on PC. You get "EasyCanvas" on the Appstore.
It will cost you 12,99 €, its a one buy fee.
It has "NO" Subscription Model ;-).

The beauty of this is ;-)
You have your (big) PC Display too, your
Mouse and PC Keyboard works also and so
your Shortcut Keys. And the best thing last,
you Paint with the Apple Pencil in Rebelle.


Rebelle via EasyCanvas on iPad Pro

Rebelle via EasyCanvas on iPad Pro 2017


My tech Specs are:
Middle power gaming PC with Window 8.1
CPU: Intel Xeon CPU E3-1230 V3, 4 Cores, 3.30 GHz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
iPad Pro 2017 with an 12,5 inch Display and Apple Pencil 1
My iPad and my PC are connected with a long USB to
Lightning Cable, it is 200 cm (78 inch) long.
There are no remarkeable Lags.

 

How its gonna work ?
Beside the "EasyCanvas" iPad App you need also
an Program on your PC, which you can Download
for free from the EasyCanvas Website.
Here is the Link:
http://www.easynlight.com/en/easycanvas/


To paint on your iPad in Rebelle the following
Steps are needed.

- Install the EasyCanvas PC Program on your PC.
- Connect your PC to the Internet.
  Only the PC need an Internet connection.
- Start the Program: "ezcvs_agent.exe" on your PC.

- Start the "EasyCanvas" App on your iPad.
- Connect your Lightning to USB Cable to your
   iPad Lightning Connection and the USB-Side
   to your PC.
- Now, you should see your PC Desktop on your iPad.

- Start Rebelle.
- In Rebelle go to Preferences / Tablet /
  set your Tablet Connection to WinTab Services.
  You have to do this, so the pressur sensivity
  of your Apple Pencil will work in Rebelle.
- Now you can Paint in Rebelle with your iPad.
- One Minor Note, you may have to pair your Pencil
  to your iPad. If so then unplug the Lightning Cable
  plugin your Pencil, pair it, and than replug the
  Lightning Cable.

EasyCanvas works with other Paintprograms too.
If pressure sensivity not work. Then try different
Tablet Settings in your Paint Program.
Pressure senvity in Rebelle works with "WinTab Services"
in ClipStudio Paint you have to set it to "Tablet-PC"

Another Note. If you paint with the Apple Pencil,
touch gestures to zoom or turn the Canvas are not
directly possible, only over EasyCanvas Menü.
But you can always zoom with your PC Mouse
and your PC Keyboard works too.

Hope you find this Tipp usefull, see you ;-)

Hi zsolt67

If you read the EasyCanvas Website you need
an Cable (e.g Lightning to USB)

But i think thats not a big Problem. As i wrote
my cable is 200 cm (78 inch) long an there is
no remarkeable lags. So you have much Room
to move your iPad. I find it really fluent.

My ipad is connected via an Lighting to UBS cable
with my PC and on the PC Side you must also
connected to the Internet. My Internet Connection
is over LAN. I think the Internet connection is mainly
for copyright things.

All Data transfair between PC and Ipad goes over
this Lightning-USB Cable. I was sceptical first but i
was suprised how well it works. My PC-Specs are
in the Post above.

And the most importand Part for me was, there is
no Subscription. Only a one time fee. And for 12 $
i dont think there is something to complain about it.

Hope this helps, have a nice day

Hi

@flatcap,
great that it works for you

@inkapades,
yes it is great, the Rebells pressure sensitivity works very well and sensitiv
with the apple pencil i like it very much. I must say that i own a cintiq 16 which
is not bad but found the apple Pencil much better than the wacom pencil.

Apart from Rebelle you can use all your pc painting programs
but in some programs you must try which Tablet Settings work.
In my case only by 2 or 3 programs most other works from
start on.

What i also like to recommend for Rebelle is a little Tool call
