Following a beta release in December, Premiere Pro is now out officially supports Mac M1. “From launch times to export, everything is faster, and editing is smooth,” says Adobe about Apple Silicon’s native version of its video editing software. The company adds that Adobe Sensei features like Auto Reframe feel “noticeably” faster and that the app uses significantly less battery power on Mac M1s.
While Apple has only been offering computers with its own ARM-based chips since November of last year, Adobe is ready to support the platform. In December, it came out with an Apple Silicon version of Lightroom and followed in March with a native version of Photoshop. With today’s announcement, you don’t need to turn to Rosetta 2 to emulate most of the company’s most popular apps. The July update to Premiere Pro also includes a handful of features that you won’t need a new Mac to appreciate. Most notable among those is a text-to-speech feature that can automatically caption a video.
