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.

This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.

glad it's not just me.   Reverted back to previous version.   No sense in screwing with work-arounds at this point.

macOS Big Sur 11.2.3

Model Name: Mac mini

  Model Identifier: Macmini9,1

  Chip: Apple M1

  Total Number of Cores: 8 (4 performance and 4 efficiency)

  Memory: 16 GB

 

No import, no export option. Not even "create video timeline" button.

No support at all.

Therefore, it supports video in Rosetta mode.

I was trying to export a video from the Photoshop timeline and the option to do it as a video doesn't appear. Photoshop beta does show the "render video" option, but in the export window shows the same options.

 

How do I fix this?

 

Im using a Macbook pro M1.

Yeah, same here. M1 machine, fully updated,  and for the record:

  • Files and Folder access change does not work
  • Moving mp4 file to Desktop does not work
  • Converting from MP4 to MP5 does not work 
  • There is not even an option to Add Video to Layer in ANY mode, let alone Motion Workspace

I actually want to use PS to make the GIFs, rather than an external website. So strange that such fundamental functionality is completely broken.

Same issue as the above. Tried a full reinstall of photoshop and tested on 2 M1 machines. Nothing to do on opening .mp4 or .mov files to make GIFs.

I recently made a  change to a new Macbook pro with the M1 chip. Upon opening up a project with a video, Photoshop said it needed to relink the video file. I attempted to do that and it gave me an error "Could not complete your request because the footage is not a recognized format." This is the same exact file that was used previously. I thought there may be an error with the video file or the smart layer. So i tried to import or open any video files both in the project and in a new project. When I try to import or open any video, in any project, it shows the video as not selectible at all.

Turns out the M1 version of photoshop does not yet support Export > Render Video

 

I had to install the previous Intel build of PS to get video export back.

First attempt at this.  Trying to take a time lapse and turn it into video.  Import seems to work out ok, but video controls show a prohibited sign (circle with slash).  Export does not allow for video render only image sequence.  Thumnail shows very small red question mark.  Have tried this a number of times with same result.  Anyone with suggestions?

Can you show the error and if possible the dialog box for rendering the video? Show full screen shots, including layers, if you can get that far.
