Adobe Premiere Pro now officially supports M1 Macs

Last year, after Apple launched Mac computers equipped with M1 chips, it has been favored by many video creators due to its relatively low price and the ability to cope with high-definition video editing. Of course, this is only limited to users who use Apple’s own Final Cut Pro X editing, because the other mainstream video editing software Premiere Pro does not adapt to the ARM version, and the performance is average. However, Adobe is still very active. After more than half a year of beta testing, Adobe has finally launched Premiere Pro, which is natively adapted to the M1 chip.

Premiere Pro allows you to take advantage of the latest technologies, including new Apple M1 devices. From launch times to export, everything is faster, and editing is buttery smooth. Thanks to optimizations for the Apple Neural Engine, part of the M1 chip architecture,  Adobe Sensei features like Auto Reframe and Scene Edit Detection are noticeably accelerated. 

Premiere Pro also takes advantage of the Apple M1’s lower power requirements providing significantly longer battery life than the previous models with comparable specifications. With full support for ground-breaking features like Speech to Text, you can produce cutting edge video content on lighter devices that rival the performance of high-end workstations.  

Previously, M1 chip Mac computers could only use Rosetta 2 technology to interpret and run Premiere Pro from the Intel chip version, and there would be a certain degree of loss in performance. In particular, the Mac version of Premiere Pro has average running efficiency, so the M1 MacBook Pro will be unable to cope with larger projects. And now the natively adapted version of the M1 chip can play the performance of Apple’s own chip. Adobe claims that it can have a 50% faster software startup speed and a 77% faster-editing performance.
