I am not able to select anything but "Create Frame Animation" in the Timeline. I am trying to create a Video Timeline, but not using Frame animation. This option isn't in the bottom left or top right of the Timeline menu.

 

I have tried resetting my preferences, uninstalling and re-installing, creating a new document, and converting all layers to smart objects, and none of those have worked. I have a macbook pro with macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3 with an Apple M1 chip.

 

Thank you for the help!

Hello people, maybe it's an old topic, but I can't find an answer. I use version 22.4.0 photoshop on a MacBook Pro M1. 
Today I wanted to open video layer in my layer menu. 
The video layer is not visible in the list. 
Help needed!

Grtz Alfons.

Certain features are not yet available on M1 Macs and video functions are amongst that.

When I try to export my GIF as a video to post on social media like Instagram and Facebook, it doesn't give me the option to do so. I attached a screenshot of all of the export options I am given. I was able to render my GIFs as a video on my old MacBook Pro.

Is the new computer equipped with M1 Chip? 

If so can you run Photoshop under Rosetta?

Go to your applications folder and open up the Photoshop folder.  Make sure you right click on the Photoshop application icon once in the folder and click on get info.  There will be a check box that says run in Rosetta.  You can toggle it back and forth when need be, just make sure you don't have Photoshop open when you do it.  I have attached an image as well to show you what it looks like.

Thank you so much!
But I've found a better solution, where you keep the M1 version:

open Finder / Programms / right click on PS / Information / "run with Rosetta"

I figured out after struggling with it for about an hour. Hopefully they will bring back the option to render it as a video on the M1 version of Photoshop soon!

Timeline video is still not working on May 20 with latest releases, very frustrating for me too, was hoping for productivity and speed improvements from the new computer, instead can't work on my timeline projects at all. They should have publicised this major missing component in the software. Also cannot output previous timeline video files.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop on the M1 Mac. This is a known issue where some Photoshop features work only using Rosetta emulation. Please check: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html

 

Our product team is working to ensure all features work in Photoshop while it runs natively on the M1 Macs.

 

Regards,

Nikunj

I recently got a new laptop, one of the m1 chip macs. previously I was able to import videos, which i use for animation, on a 2018 macbook air. now not even previous projects will not play their videos and the timeline feature no longer allows me to hit play. this is the error message I get when attemting to import any kind of video file:

"Could not place “filename.mov” because no parser or file format can open the file. "

Additionally im not able to do things like purge the video cache because:

"Could not complete the Video Cache command because DynamicLink is not available."

im not sure wether dynamic link is related.

This works, thank you Lindsey. Now I switch Photoshop between running in Rosetta and running natively on the M1 chip when I need to work with video. This is an incredibly inconvenient solution and I expect better from Adobe...

 

Perhaps one could install an older version of Photoshop and designate that to run on Rosetta, while utilizing the most current version as a native implementation. This might be convenient enough to satisfy me, except that the help article from Adobe that describes the process of installing an older version of a CC app without removing the current version is completely ineffective. Even when toggling "Remove older versions" as explained in the article, I receive a notice when installing older versions that the currently installed version will be replaced.

 

It's like the Adobe devs and community are inviting us to set sail on the seas of....you know what. It's probably about time.
