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.

Screenshot 2021-08-30 at 6.54.48 PM.png

I've been doing animations on Photoshop and was able to export > render video as MP4 but when I switched computers I can't find that option anymore! It's really troublesome to save as a gif (I have problems sending gif files as people are unable to download/preview them) Is there a workaround? It seems that function has disappeared... my Photoshop version is 22.4.2 and working on a BigSur on iMac.

Hello, if you switched to a M1 Mac, it is expected with Photoshop 22, as at time of writing 22.5, there is no render video in the native version of Ps, you need to use the Rosetta version to get render video.

You do have the option 'Render Image Sequence'. If you click that, does a menu come up, where you can choose 'Adobe Media Encoder' instead of 'photoshop Image Sequence'?

Hello, you need to use the Rosetta version of Photoshop, as the video timeline is not yet ported for Apple silicon: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

Hi! Thanks for helping me out. Yes, I am currently using the M1 iMac, and I also download Rosetta (it's called Silicon Info, doubted it for a sec) and now the Render Video button is back at last! Thank you! Hopefully this is helpful for anyone who needs it.

When every I try to use the timeline they playbutton gets this crossed out curser over it and I can't interact with it at all. I opened a image sequence of 30 frames and it will not let me play the animation. I tried doing the exact same thing on my windows 10 desktop and it worked perfectly fine. It seems to be an issue with macOS but this is the first time ive used a mac and I dont know how to trouble shoot it that well.

Was having an issue trying to export a GIF file from Photoshop (22.5.0) to an mp4 on my Mac Mini (M1) running the latest MacOS Big Sur. The 'Adobe Media Encoder' option was greyed out.

 

Found that by relaunching Photoshop to run is Rosetta solved the problem and I can now export my frame PSD files to mp4 once again.

 

Please make this function work natively on an M1 Mac please Adobe, cheers.

Hi, could you clarify in regards of what you do mean with AE?

I think you might also have to run it in Rosetta 2. Native support will first appear in a beta version. See also : https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/apple-silicon-m1-chip.html

 

The M1 processor is a new architechture to support, it takes time to flawlessy port programs that are millions of codelines to a new codebase.

Otra vez desaparecio la opcion de video de la linea de tiempo. 

Lo pude usar una sola vez.

Desinstale PS y lo instale desde el link que me indicaste y volví al mismo problema.

 

 

Verdaderamente una lastima.

Try updating Photoshop if you haven't already. Another update only just came out. Hope the solution is that easy.
