Top troubleshooting articles
Are there issues with any of your projects? Check the list of known issues to see if the issue is known. Here are some of the current known issues. Listed is the following known issue for 24.0.
Known Issue: Adobe video and audio products no longer support Rosetta.
Issue: Starting with version 24.0, Adobe video and audio products no longer support Rosetta emulation (Intel versions running on Apple M1/M2). Please be aware that the Creative Cloud desktop still shows the Rosetta option on M1/M2 machines, but this will still launch the native Apple Silicon version. Intel versions can only be run on Mac Intel machines.
The Open using Rosetta option is no longer available in the Get Info window.
Known Issue:. Overlays via Transmit do not work correctly during playback.
Issue: When the transmit overlays are enabled via the Enable overlays with Transmit and Enable overlays during playback settings (Wrench menu in Program monitor), the Transmit monitor might not display the video content correctly.
Workaround: Turn off Enable overlays with Transmit to display the frames correctly. A partial workaround would be to use the metadata effect to display a subset of the overlay information.
Issue: A customer with a Macintosh M2 Studio or Mac Pro with multiple monitors may experience poor playback performance.
Workaround: Enable Displays have separate Spaces in macOS System Settings > Desktop & Dock. Apple and Adobe are working on a permanent fix for this issue.
Prevent Known Crash Issues:
If you need assistance addressing any of these known issues, please create a new post. The community will assist you.
NEW! Troubleshooting using "Safe Mode": You can now press any key on launch to perform key troubleshooting steps from the new Reset Options dialog box (sometimes referred to as "Safe Mode"), like resetting preferences, removing media cache, reset plug-in loading cache, and temporarily disabling third-party plug-ins. It's a great first step in triaging your own issues related to Premiere Pro.
Bug fixes in the release are listed here. Thanks to the team, who provided an extensive list of those issues that are fixed.
