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!

Hi I think you have to run Photoshop under Rosetta, more info https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

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.

I think that Rosetta was either already installed, or part of the OS... Maybe should Apple change the order of the instructions, to that the right-click, get info is on top.

yes, it is available in the system, we just need to approve it to activate it, it was a bit difficult to find it 🙂

Have you found a solution to this? I had to look it up because I'm not seeing the option either.

Photoshop 23.02 is missing the Video Timeline. I have to go open the Intel version from the cloud to use the the Video Timeline. Frame Animation shows up in both versions (Intel/M1 Pro).

This is a really weird solution. Why does this work? This is some sort of scientific modeling software from a university....

The solution that I've directly responded to about having to download some sort of rosetta software. Your OS has Rosetta pre-built into it if you have an M1 processor in your mac. All you need to do is go to the main Photoshop Application in your applications folder, right click it, select get info, and click the checkbox that says "open in Rosetta" which is Apples emulator for running apps that run better on Intel chips than their M1 chip. Adobe better pick up the pace because I want the M1 performance.

Dont download this software or jump through these other hoops.

You're quite right, thanks for explaining further. The link in so_steph's reply is indeed the wrong Rosetta. I've asked the moderators to consider removing the link.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop on the M1Pro MacBook. This is a known issue with Apple silicon devices & our product team is working on making the video features available natively on the Apple silicon devices. Currently, they are only available under the Rosetta emulation mode.

Please check: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

 

Regards,

Nikunj

Hi Everyone,

Same issue as Giovanni, Photoshop does not open MP4 and MOV files.

Even after installing Rosetta it does not work. I'm on MacOS Monterrey and M1 Pro chipset.
Anyone fixed this issue? Thanks for your hints.

I get it. I expected some bugs and some workarounds. Just hoping the video timeline will come back in future updates.

So when is this getting fixed?

 

Getting harder and harder to understand why we pay for a subscription if the software can't be updated to just work 'normally' a year after mac's have been upgraded...

You need to look at the other replies in this conversation. You'll have to run your mac through "Rosetta" which is Apples Intel emulator until Adobe designs photoshop to run on the M1 chip. Yes...this feels like something they shouldve done beforehand...

 

Go to the main photoshop application icon in your applications folder. Right click and select "Get info". In that pop-up there is a "run in Rosetta" option you can select. Click the checkbox and then open up photoshop. You should have access to those other features but make sure to save often just in case. I've heard it might be a little less secure.

Hello. When trying to open a video file through file/open within Photoshop, all video files are grayed-out. Right clicking on a video file and choosing to open with Photoshop yields a popup from Photoshop stating that it can not open this type of file.

 

This problem occurs with all video files tested from ProRes to h264 -- files which open on an older hardware/software system.

 

Current problematic setup:

Photoshop 23.0.2

MacOS 12.0.1

MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021) M1 Max

64 GB Ram

Screen Shot 2021-12-07 at 2.59.40 PM.png

Thanks for any advice or info,

Benjamin

Photoshop had "Accessibility" and "Full Disk Access" enabled within System preferences. I added "Files & Folders" just now and restarted, but video files still would not open.

@BGPictures 

Are you running Photoshop through Rosetta 2?

Running in Rosetta is not a fix its a janky sorry excuse for a workaround.  The previous verison of photoshop supported video with the M1 chip flawlessly, this is just something Adobe doesn't want to fix for some reason in the current verison (or can't).  I pay for full funactionality of this software (or so i thought) and not to open the program 49 different ways to get it every feature to work.  Get it together Adobe, this is sad.

Thank you, Jeffery, to you and the team! I'll be watching for it before I move to an M1 computer.

Video is 100% supported on the M2 chip.  I am using Photoshop V22.0.0 on an M2 with full video editing capabilities.  This broke however in furture releases of Photoshop and Adobe doesn't care to fix it apparently.

Bonjour,

J'ai essayé tout à l'heure en cours d'importer une vidéo (.mov), mais le logiciel m'indique le message suivant : 

Impossible d'effectuer cette opération car Photoshop ne reconnaît pas ce type de fichier.

De plus, il ne me propose que la création une animation d'image et pas de montage vidéo, pourtant, je suis sur la dernière version de photoshop...

Mon professeur n'a pas su résoudre le problème et je suis la seule à l'avoir rencontré visibliment, si jamais vous avez déjà rencontré ce problème ou si vous avez des idées de solutions, je suis preneuse !! 

Merci!
