I just installed PPro 2022 on a mac M1 mini with OS Monteray. I have a Black Magic Ultrastudio 4k mini which is confirmed to be compatible both Premier and the Mac m1 mini and OS Monteray.
Strangely, the capture panel is completely missing from the WORKSPACE dropdown menu in Premiere! Equally weird, it is also missing from the FILE drop down menu. Like, an entire workflow function has gone from Premiere.
I have the exact same version of Premiere 2022 (2022.2) at home on an iMac mid 2017 running OS Catalina and guess what. The Capture panel is there in WORKSPACE and FILE dropdowns.
What is going on ? Am I imagining things ?

Can you try running the Intel version of Premiere 2022 on your M1 Mac and see if the capture panel shows correctly there?
Thanks for the quick reply Jeff !
I can try runnign the intel version for sure if I can find it. Is that possible to download from the list of "OTHER versions" in the CReative CLoud App tab ? Also, wouldn't that add other possible issues ?
Yes, that's where to download it.
Remember, the only reason you are installing this version is to test if the capture panel shows correctly. If it does, the reason it is now showing is likely the M1 version vs the Intel one. If it doesn't, then the issue lies elsewhere. We're just troubleshooting at this point, I'm not saying this download will fix your problems.
Ok, Thanks for the pathway to possible solutions. I won't hold you to an immediate fix, LOL.
You were right Jeff !
The capture panel and File>Capture command are missing in the M1 version of PREMEIRE.
So Adobe must have made the decision to eliminate capturing video from their M1 code I guess ? They were present in the intel version on the same computer.
But, of course, it isn't that easy. Now its an entirely new suite of issues.
Premeire doesn't see the BM UltraStudio 4k mini in the hardware setups but ore screen and some key options for device control and device selection are not available in different preferences. The M1 mini does see the BM Ustudio 4k though and I can play soud and picture thorugh it and capture all day with the BM software. Adobe does support this unit and I have followed all the directions posted in ADOBe and BM docs to no avail.
So maybe its just a no go with the particular combination of things I suppose.
I've looked through previous Premiere release notes and I don't see any mention of the Capture functionality being removed from the M1 version of Premiere. (Though I just confirmed it's gone on my M1 device as well)
@Kevin-Monahan do you know if there's anywhere this change is mentioned?
Actually, found it:
There are some differences in functionality and some features are not available with Premiere Pro on Apple M1.
So this appears to be a known issue. You can run the non M1 version to capture your footage, then import into the M1 version if you prefer to use that one for now.
Ahhh, it's tied up in a Big Sur tagged doc. Thanks Jeff, that's thoughtful of you to close this thread with a pathway for people with a similar issue.
I'm going to start a new thread regarding why the Intel version isn't actually capturing or recognising my compatible capture device.
