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.

You'll need to run in Rosetta for some features until they are updated to run native: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

This is a known problem, listed by Adobe in their article about features that are not yet working on Apple Silicon:

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

 

If you need to use video in Photoshop on an Apple Silicon Mac now, the temporary solution is to restart Photoshop in the Apple Rosetta translation layer. All features will become available, but it will be running translated Intel code, not native Apple Silicon code.

 

Maybe later Adobe will add the video features to the Apple Silicon-native code.

Im trying to make a simple future city animation in photoshop but the video timeline no longer seems to be an option. The only option I get when I open a new timeline window is a Frame Animation.  I can see the video timeline option on the lower lefthand side but its grayed out. Ive made several future city animations before but have never had this issue.  I have an M1 Mac so maybe thats it?

For any future person who has this issue, it it a compatability issue with the M1 — in the CC app under "all apps" you click the 3 dots next to Photoshop, and select "Open (Intel)" and that will resolve it.

2 updates and another year gone by and Adobe still hasn't fixed this. Using Photoshop in Rosetta is not a fix to the problem, why am I paying for a sunscription to use the latest version when the latest version doesn't supply the necessary tools for me to do my job?

You didn't say if you are running PS in Rosetta?

You have the folder selected. Open the folder and select the PS application inside it.
