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!

If you're on a new Apple M1 processor machine, video isn't current supported. It's coming in the future. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html Run in Rosetta until native support is available for video.

This is a public user forum answered by volunteer Photoshop users. We do not work for Adobe. Please do not publish personal information in posts here. I have removed it from your post above.

 

Are you using an Apple computer with the M1 chipset? If so, try running it under Rosetta which should enable the video functions

Hi @default3wxzo68cssb4 

 

I've copied this from the link Dave posted earlier:

 

"Features not available in the native mode

"Refer to the below list to determine whether to open Photoshop in Native mode or open using Rosetta. 

"To learn how to run Photoshop in Rosetta, see About Rosetta.

  • "Import, Export, and playback of embedded video layers"

For video you will need to run Photoshop under Rosetta.

Hi @Alexandr5C6D 

 

You need to run Photoshop under Rosetta to use video with the M1 chip. Details here:

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"

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.
