Now also native Apple M1 support for Adobe Premiere Pro


At the end of last year, Apple presented the first Macs equipped with the new proprietary M1 processor. For many software suppliers, this meant that they had to update their products so that they could also handle the new Apple chip. So are all Adobe programs that were once developed, ‘back in the nineties’, specifically to take full advantage of the graphic qualities of the Mac. In fact, at that time almost all graphic designs were created on a Mac.

A Mac ‘without’ Adobe

In that light, for me, as a first-time Mac user — well, since 1992 — it was at least a little odd to see Apple launch a new Mac that isn’t immediately suited for running Adobe design software. The software developer immediately indicated that most programs can run on M1 Macs using Apple’s Rosetta 2 technology.

They have now worked on M1 support at Adobe. With the release of the new version of Premiere Pro for M1, another step has been taken. After Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, Ilustrator and InDesign, the large, widely used Adobe packages are now almost all updated for use on an M1 Mac

Faster, speech-to-text and new subtitles

The update of Premiere Pro for M1 also means, according to Adobe itself, a significant speed gain. Booting up is 50 percent faster and when editing a video, that speed gain could even go up to 77 percent. It is not clear, however, which ‘editing’ actions Adobe specifically refers to.

In addition to the speed gain, the new version of Premiere Pro has received a few other feature updates. The most prominent is a speech-to-text function that automatically generates a video transcription. Finally, a new subtitle option has been added. With that, you can adjust how that text appears in your video.
