I am not able to select anything but "Create Frame Animation" in the Timeline. I am trying to create a Video Timeline, but not using Frame animation. This option isn't in the bottom left or top right of the Timeline menu.

 

I have tried resetting my preferences, uninstalling and re-installing, creating a new document, and converting all layers to smart objects, and none of those have worked. I have a macbook pro with macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3 with an Apple M1 chip.

 

Thank you for the help!

You'll need to run in Rosetta for now. Native support is coming in a future release.

If you're on a new Apple M1 processor machine, video isn't current supported. It's coming in the future. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html Run in Rosetta until native support is available for video.

Video features are incomplete on M1 Macs and many of them simply won't work. You have to use other programs/ tools to at least convert your clip to an image sequence that can be imported.

Ugh, just got a new work computer with the M1 chip and am having this exact issue. Can no longer use the timeline feature to create .mp4 files as the button is greyed out and there is no way to toggle to the "video timeline" from the Timeline window, which means there is no way to export as a video file. Huge bummer. After Effects is too convoluted for the kind of simple GIF videos I need to make... Adobe, please fix ASAP! 😞

Just in case it helps anyone else, you can actually disable the current version and download the oldest available version of PS from CC and that has re-enabled this feature for me. Hopefully they fix it before I am forced to update to a newer version.

At least with M1 Macs, in my experience this is not a viable option. I downgraded to the pre-M1 PS and it was completely unstable. Had 4 crashes in the course of a day. Moved back to newer the non-timeline M1-native version and crashes stopped.

Yeah, I changed it back to the updated version after I finished that project. The new PS is super glitchy on my new computer too.. :'( The whole screen glitches constantly and oftentimes I can't even see what i'm working on.

* Ésto funcionó para mí, al final son de las cosas que ADOBE tiene que corregir para el M1 y ya va tarde para ésto. 

* This works for me , this is the kind of thing that ADOBE has to fix for the M1 , Adobe is going slow with this adaptations

It appears you are running on a Mac.  Does anyone have a solution for those of us running on a PC?

Thanks,

Hi Janet,

You added to a thread about the M1 chip, which does not apply to Windows. Can you please start a new thread and explain your issue there?

I agree, I was shocked to find it missing. I couldn't believe such a useful feature was gone. Will have to use the timeline on the pc instead but I have been enjoying all the other features on the M1 Photoshop. I would love to see even more options included on the timeline such as smart filters, now that would make it 10,000 times more useful (I know, I could use After Effects but there are some things in Photoshop not in AE)

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop while trying to create a timeline on your M1 Mac. Would you mind sharing the version of Photoshop you're using along with your computers macOS version?

 

You can try running Photoshop under Rosetta to check if that helps. Please check: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211861

 

You can also check: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

 

Let us know if it helps!

Regards,

Nikunj
