I recently update Photoshop to 22.3.1 and my render to video options are gone. Not grayed out but non existent. If I go to render image sequence there's no more option for video formats either. Haven't seen a lot of posting about this so I'm wondering if there is something wrong on my end. I was able to resovle the issue by reverting back a few versions but it is a persistent issue with the most up to date version. It's annoying to have to revert everytime, I need to export a lot of frame animations to video for my job.
I'm running on a Macbook Pro M1 2020 Big Sur 11.2.3
If anyone has a fix for this or has had this issue before let me know!
I notice in your screenshot that there is a "render image sequence" option (the last one in the menu), which is available in the Render Video window up to 22.3. Have you checked if by any chance this is now the default tool, with an option in that window to create video files?

Hey! I had this same issue. I did a lot of googling to figure it out because I've never owned a Mac before. Because you've got a new Mac, it all comes down to them switching to Apple Silicon Chips, and Adobe not up to speed. Basically your Photoshop is running in universal mode (the faster Apple Chip mode) rather than Intel (the slower Intel chip mode, but gives you all your options).
So to solve you need to run Photoshop as Rosetta. I actually had to ask support how to do this. Exit Photoshop, go into your application folder and find Photoshops folder, right click on the Photoshop application in the folder, click on get info, in that there will be an option that says Run in Rosetta. Check that and then restart Photoshop, and you should have your render as a video button. It worked for me. It will run slower, but you can toggle back and forth between versions if you're doing something quick and don't need that button. Here is a link and explains some of the things missing
Thank you so much! Will look into this solution now!
Thank you so much!! This was so helpful!
I can confirm this solution works!
My god, thank you so much!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU! This change to M1 with Adobe has been ROUGH to say the very least. This solution helped me just keep working finally. I just wish we didnt have to take time out to be googling this shiz to begin with.
I just need to chime in and say a HUGE thank you for this answer!!! I just spent two days googling how to make a gif, and every single instructions said to "render to video" - easy as that!!! But mine didn't have that option, and this was the first thing I've found in TWO DAYS of searching, and it worked!!! THANK YOU!!!! *sobbing quietly into my computer, wishing I had my own IT department*
Much appreciated. I guess "the first batch of cookies never comes out right."
Thank you for this! Can confirm that this does the trick
Thank you! Worked for me!
blc2021, you deserve the nobel prize for this!
It may be a Mac issue not an Issue on a PC.
I'm also on an M1 Mac and my Render to Video option has completely disappeared.
Hey, I just posted a solution for your issue in this thread. You just need need to run Photoshop in Rosetta. I explain how along with a link explaining the issues related to the problem. I hope this helps.
hi i have this same issue as well
but i can't seem to figure out where to get Rosetta 😞
i'm using an Mac Pro, Apple M1 on Big Sur
Go to your applications folder and open up the Photoshop folder. Make sure you right click on the Photoshop application icon once in the folder and click on get info. There will be a check box that says run in Rosetta. You can toggle it back and forth when need be, just make sure you don't have Photoshop open when you do it. I have attached an image as well to show you what it looks like.
Thank you so much for posting this question!!! The answer has helped me SO MUCH! Thank you!!!
It does work!!!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
