M1 MACBOOK ISSUE PREMIERE PRO

Quick breakdown of the workflow:

 

  1. QuickTime Screen recording
  2. Bring that file into Pr Pro
  3. Usually include some other footage from a camera to sync in the timeline

 

The issue:

 

  • If the screen recording file includes any movement, the footage looks very pixelated. 
  • This is a problem before and after a render as well as after the export.
  • The original file does not have this problem.
  • This was an issue with the M1 MacBook on the non-Beta version of Pr Pro, it seems to be better with the Beta, but still prevalent.
  • This did not occur on a 2019 silicon updated MacBook. 
  • The screen recording file is not the same framerate as the sequence/timeline, but that has not been a problem on past/non-M1 machines.

 

Possible fix:

 

  • Disabling hardware encoding will fix it, but I don't see that as a viable solution given how slow software encoding is.

 

If anyone knows of a fix without using software encoding, that would be incredible.

I'll check this out. Could be a good workaround, but this was not needed on my last computer with the exact same workflow.
