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.

When are video editing tools and plugin support going to be added to the Apple Silicon/M1 version? Getting tired of switching back and forth for these basic functions. Thanks.

I believe Photoshop does have plug-in support, and M1 plug-ins work. Your old Intel plug-ins don't work and never will. Each plugin maker needs to make new M1 plug-ins. (If I understand your question correctly).

The proper Photoshop support forums have been merged with this one, hoping for an Adobe rep to respond here.

Hi there,

That doesn't sound good. Have you tried resetting the preferences of Photoshop and see if that helps? 

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

 

Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preset-migration.html

 

Regards,

Sahil

You will need to run Photoshop in Rosetta on an M1 device until there is an update for video to run natively on M1 devices. Details here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

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'?

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.

Screen Shot 2021-09-01 at 2.10.44 PM.png

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.
