I purchased some professionally created transitions for Premier Pro and some of them say that I need to use Graphics Acceleration in order for them to work. I'm editing on a brand new M2 Macbook Pro and I can't find the "Mercury Playback Engine" choice or any other mention of graphics acceleration in Premier Pro 23.2. It was obviously there in previous versions but how/where do I make that selection now or is this just not something I need to worry about with an M2 Mac?
I'm editing 4k 60fps video but just a single timeline with some transitions & overlays and still getting some stuttering so I'm guessing I need to turn on all the crazy power of my Mac somehow??
Go to File menu > project setting > General > and change the Render mode to "Software Only", for the M2 chip it's disabled you can enable it through the Console Menu. Press Fn + cmd + F12 once the Console menu opens go to Debug database View and search for ML.EnableSWrenderforMacArm set the check box to true then try again.
