Adobe Releases Beta of Premiere Pro for M1 Macs

Posted by · 5770 views · Translate
Adobe has announced the release of a Premiere Pro beta that brings native support for M1 Macs. The company is using a phased approach to bringing Premiere Pro to Apple Silicon so not all functionality has been ported yet.

Since Premiere Pro is built on a large codebase with support for a wide range of media and workflows, we will implement native support for Apple M1 in phases and some parts have not been ported yet. This phased approach allows us to validate performance and functionality for specific parts of the application before we add new components. And it also allows you to start seeing the benefits now.

The first public Beta includes all the core editing functions and workflows like color, graphics, and audio, as well as features like Productions, and multicam. We prioritized support for the most widely used codecs, like H.264, HEVC, and ProRes. The average editor is likely to see very little difference from the Intel version, but there are some limitations which are listed below. Please check back on this thread for more updates as we add more functionality.

General Things to Know
● Premiere Pro Beta for Apple M1 uses the new captions workflow, which requires you to upgrade project file format. If you want to work with current projects, we recommend creating a copy of for Beta testing to avoid compatibility issues with any ongoing production work.
● After Effects and Media Encoder do not yet have Beta versions for M1 Macs. Dynamic Link with After Effects and Queue to Media Encoder will work with the Intel Beta versions of those applications, which will run under Rosetta 2 emulation mode

Supported Formats
● H.264 & H.265 in MP4, MOV, or MXF
● AVC Intra
● ProRes in MOV or MXF
