Our team is working hard on a version of Premiere Pro that will run natively on Apple’s new Apple Silicon based M1 processor. The first public Beta is available today and we invite you to test it out! Your feedback is welcome. We will be updating the Beta frequently as new builds become available.  Please see the notes below.

 

Premiere Pro BetaPremiere Pro Beta     Apple Silicon M1 processorApple Silicon M1 processor

 

For more information on Adobe video and audio apps for Apple M1 systems, please see this blog post  https://blog.adobe.com/en/2020/12/21/now-in-beta-premiere-pro-premiere-rush-audition-for-apple-m1-sy...

 

The Beta processes

Since Premiere Pro is built on a large codebase with support for a wide range of media and workflows, we will implement native support for Apple M1 in phases and some parts have not been ported yet.  This phased approach allows us to validate performance and functionality for specific parts of the application before we add new components. And it also allows you to start seeing the benefits now.

 

The first public Beta includes all the core editing functions and workflows like color, graphics, and audio, as well as features like Productions, and multicam.  We prioritized support for the most widely used codecs, like H.264, HEVC, and ProRes.  The average editor is likely to see very little difference from the Intel version, but there are some limitations which are listed below. Please check back on this thread for more updates as we add more functionality.

 

Running current Intel version in Rosetta 2 emulation mode

While we complete the Apple M1-native versions of our Premiere Pro, you can install and run the current release version of Premiere Pro using Rosetta 2 emulation with Apple M1 devices and macOS 11.0 (Big Sur).

 

Please note that third party integrations such as panels, plugins, effects and drivers for transmit hardware will need to be updated by the developer to run natively on Apple Silicon and may or may not work in Rosetta 2 emulation mode today.

 

General Things to Know

  • Premiere Pro Beta for Apple M1 uses the new captions workflow, which requires you to upgrade project file format. If you want to work with current projects, we recommend creating a copy of for Beta testing to avoid compatibility issues with any ongoing production work.
  • After Effects and Media Encoder do not yet have Beta versions for M1 Macs.  Dynamic Link with After Effects and Queue to Media Encoder will work with the Intel Beta versions of those applications, which will run under Rosetta 2 emulation mode

 

Supported Formats

  • H.264 & H.265 in MP4, MOV, or MXF
  • AVC Intra
  • XAVC-I & XAVC-L in MXF
  • ProRes in MOV or MXF
  • JPG, PNG, GIF, WebP, HEIF/HEIC
  • AAC, WAV, M4A

 

Known Issues

  • Tapping the tool selector on the Touch Bar (MacBook Pro) can cause a crash
  • Premiere Pro can crash on launch if set to Chinese localization
  • A crash can happen during the analysis phase of Scene Edit Detection
  • Team Projects collaborators can appear offline
  • Dragging markers in the Timeline or Program Monitor can cause a flicker in the Program Monitor
  • Estimated file size when exporting can be incorrect by an order of magnitude
  • Project Manager has an incomplete set of presets as well as some extraneous presets
  • Using Lumetri color controls while the Program or Source Monitor are set to Multi-Camera view can cause the application to hang
  • Using “Replace with After Effects Composition” will fail to bring the selected clips into After Effects
  • The background process “dynamiclinkmanager” can cause temporary hangs if the Intel After Effects Beta is launched before the native M1 Premiere Pro Beta. If intending to use both applications, make sure to quit all Adobe applications, then launch the native M1 Premiere Pro Beta, followed by launching the Intel After Effects Beta

 

Not functioning currently

  • Learn Panel and in-app tutorials
  • Support for control surfaces
  • Not all video & audio effects have been ported
  • Legacy Titler (use the essential graphics workflow instead)
  • Motion Graphics Templates authored in After Effects (Premiere Pro authored MOGRTs work)
  • Old caption workflow (please use the new captioning workflow which is available in both beta versions, Apple Silicon and Intel)
  • Interchange formats (XML, AAF, OMF)
  • Capture panel & preferences
  • Device Control preferences
  • Third party plug-in support including panels, effects, scripting, and transmit
  • Libraries panel

I believe Rosetta 2 comes installed. My day job is creating commercials for a TV network and I would not use the Beta yet for anything other than testing. The beta is missing a lot of functionality. The regular version runs fine, just not as fast. Was there a specific reason that you were concerned about Rosetta

I tried to work in the Intel version first, but it did´nt work out edit in 4K. To slow. I have the Macbook Pro 16 gb memory. So I decided to test the beta version. It went smooth. But, yes there are missing lot of functionality. But Adobe says that the Premiere Pro MOGRT files should work, it does with the pre-installed, but adding new ones from Envato Elements does´nt. I get an error message. Also I have issues importing alpha channel clips from After Effects. It says it doesnt support .mov files - very strange. I have done this for years. Exporting RGB+Alpha "Animation" from AE, import it to Pr. But now...not.

It isn't. The first time you run an Intel app, Rosetta 2 installs itself.
Anyhow—I don't want Intel apps on my Mac 😛

No RED files work with Premiere 14.9 Beta - the importer is not there. Would be extra important to check speed.

In After Effects 17.7.0 Beta the importer for RED files work?

Pleas Help.

I am having significant issues with 14.9.0.67. I keep getting an error that says "GPU Frame Reload Error" while trying to edit in this version. I am running an M1 Mac Mini on Big Sur. Is there a way I can downgrade to 14.8 beta?Screen Shot 2021-01-18 at 12.05.14 PM.png

I have an issue with MOV files since the first beta for Apple M1, and it's still there in Premiere Pro beta V15. 

A picture is worth a thousand words. If I use Premiere Pro 14.8 stable (not for M1) theare are no issue with MOV files. What am I doing wrong?

@Nicola5C7F You are not doing anything wrong. The 14.8 stable version is our full Intel application, which is running in translation on an M1 Mac. The 15.0 Beta is different because it is written specifically for M1. We aren't done yet porting all the features and formats over yet. Could you give more information what kind of footage this is?

It's a MOV file with an alpha channel (so it has to stay MOV). It's a short intro I use for my videos, with a transparency at the end. Full HD, codec linear PCM

I cannot get the PP Beta to open. Updated to the new version today and it still can't get the splash screen. Doesn't load plugins or anything.

I've got the same issue. I've "solved" it with a force close and retry. After 2-3 attempts it usually works (you can see it when it starts loading libraries)

UNABLE TO OPEN TEXT PANEL

 

Macbook Pro 16GB M1/Premiere Pro v15.2

 

Ever since the new caption workflow, I have not been able to open the Text Panel. When I go to the Window Menu, click on Text, nothing happens. I am able to still use the caption track, but I can only edit the text from the Edit Tab on the Essential Graphics Panel or by clicking directly on the Program Monitor.

I've Google searched, restarted, updated, uninstalled, but to no avail.

Does anybody else have an issue with this? Any help would be appreciated!

This could also be some service other than Digital Anarchy.

Just come up with a can't connect to the internet account verification error. As I am in creative cloud which is active at this point and also just checking the error on the web ... not sure why it says there is no internet access. Also says I have reached the last day of my premiere pro beta subscription ... as I have been paying for the creative cloud, not sure why it is coming up with that message. Perhaps a temp glitch of yet another update (seems to be updating nearly every half a day with a new premiere pro beta).

Quick question,
With no AAF/XML/OMF export options, can older vresions (or AAF capable) versions open projects or bins from this beta version of Premiere?
Or once an edit is begun is the only way to export is via a rendered video?
 
Also, how is Premiere running on a 16gb m1 under Rosetta?
[looking to buy an extra mac to do extra/block edits and thinking to just get the macmini 16Gb, but want to intregrate it into an intel Premiere pro enviroment)

The Premiere beta can be found beta apps section of the creative cloud app. M1 installs easily and I have enjoyed using the app (other for a slight glitch but resolved by installing both the premiere pro and the beta at the same time)
