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.

Another week, another person who makes the same complaint that has existed since the very beginning, but as though they are the first to experience it. And another good-hearted soul repeats the same workaround that the rest of us who do read previous comments and answers already know - Rosetta. 

If (not when) Adobe remedies this issue, it will show up in an update. That's all we can hope for. I need to unsubscribe from this thread.

Hi,

this problem exist for more than a year now and Adobe doesn’t seem to care.
You can solve this by downgrading your Photoshop version to v 22.0. You can find this option in the Creative Cloud App.

Hope this helps… and that Adobe FINALLY solves this issue in PS’s next update.

One thing that is happening is that users are creating new threads which are being answered by a volunteer. Then someone else is merging that thread with this longer one. The poster most likely was never aware of the other posts.

 

When Adobe is able to fully resolve this issue, they will post it in this thread and we will all be notified at once. Jeffrey Tranberry has already told us it's coming for the M1 processor (yay!) in one of the posts mark "Correct".

I'm on a Macbook Air (MacOS 11.2) version of photoshop and when i try to use the timeline it shows me only the option of photograms and not the "create a timeline" one. I can't even import videos or edit them, they're just considered as they could't be read. I'm new on photoshop so i don't know if I have to change settings or is it a sort of a bug (or a limitation of the device, but I don't think so since i bought this Mac last summer). Anyway the version I'm using is the 23.1.1 and I also tried older versions ma the problem still remains.

 

Thank you for the help in advance.

If you have an M1, the instructions are above in the thread, but I've copied and pasted here: in the CC app under "all apps" you click the 3 dots next to Photoshop, and select "Open (Intel)" and that will resolve it. - Brit Collins

 

It works BUT!! I had to close out my photoshop files, force quit Photoshop, and then "open (intel). Start a new file> then click on the video timeline. it works. thanks brit!!

Hi, I am desperate to bring back the Export > Render video function. This was the perfect setup for stop motion. Now there are only tedious work arounds and you need to use multiple programs.

Adobe article for reference on stop mo process (no longer possible now):

As others have stated, the workaround for opening video files within Photoshop on an M1 Mac is to run Photoshop under Rosetta:

• Highlight the Photoshop app in the applications folder

• Command + i opens up the info window

• tick the box "Open using Rosetta"

I see how I can export a Timeline Video, but there doesn't seem to be a way to export Frame Animations anymore in Photoshop 23.1.0?? This has been a part of my workflow for a while. Any tips?

Not sure if this may help, but I do animations in PSD with students...Maybe check out this link for Rendering Video (you can open Render Video and export specific frames in this setting).

Bonjour, 

 

je viens d'installer Photoshop sur mon MacOS M1, j'ai bien suivi la procédure d'installation, or je n'ai plus accès ni au montage video ni à l'ouverture de fichier video sur photoshop alors que j'y arrivai très bien depuis mon ancien ordinateur, à quoi cela est dû ? 

 

 

 

Cordialement,

il faut ouvrir photoshop avec Rosetta sur le M1 pour avoir accès au montage vidéo.

Pour ça il faut faire un command+i sur l'icone de l'application et cocher la case ouvrir avec Rosetta.

Puis lancer l'application. Attention cela rame pas mal !

Hi, if you are using an M1 Mac, that's expected.

 

Start Photoshop in Rosetta mode: In the CC application, select Photoshop in the installed program section, click on the ... menu and select Open in Intel mode. see: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

There is no "Export Video" item in the "File" menu "Export". Because of this, I can't save my animation. What should I do? Help me please.

Late to the party, but also frustrated by the lack of current support for rendering videos.

My work around, because I'm not interested in downloading yet another software, to accomplish a simple task that an older version of Photoshop is capable of, (besides the point) if it's not Apple its an OS. They both love pointing fingers.

Not ideal, BUT...I've rendered a stop motion by Saving for Web as a GIF (compresses file and definitely isn't ideal) then render GIF as an MP4 through After Effects or Premier Pro. 

I hope this helps as an alternative to downloading more software that may or may not complicate things.

Also, hoping Apple and Adobe learn to hold hands sooner than later.
