Owners of the new Apple Silicon M1 Macs will now be able to run Adobe’s video editing software Premiere Pro, since Adobe has released an Arm version of the software for macOS. The program is still in its beta testing stage. Moreover, Adobe’s Premiere Rush and Audition have been updated to run on the new machines as well.
Premiere Pro’s features are being ported over in phases, including its core editing functions, workflows, and popular codecs like H.264, HEVC, and ProRes. Third-party integrations, however, will have to be updated by their respective developers to work on Apple Silicon.
Users can run the currently released version of Premiere Pro on M1 Macs using Rosetta 2 emulation while the Arm version is still in development, and some third-party integrations may not work in this mode.
Previously, Adobe had released Photoshop and Lightroom for Apple’s new Arm-based Macs, and Premiere Pro has joined these apps too now. The move made by Adobe was pretty quick, since the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini were released only over a month ago.
