It will gradually introduce all the features of Premiere Pro to users. So not everything is ready for the new ARM-based processor for now.
This public beta version of Premiere Pro features basic editing functions and workflows such as color, graphics and sound, productions and multi-camera. Adobe has also prioritized support for most commonly used codecs such as H.264, HEVC, and ProRes.
Adobe says the project files need to be updated initially to make them compatible with the new version. Additionally, users are advised to create extra copies of the project to use in the beta version.
There are some known issues in the beta version. For example, tapping the Tool Selector on the Touch Bar of a MacBook Pro can cause the application to crash, or when exporting, the estimated file sizes may show incorrect values in order of size.
Adobe encourages most users to use Rosetta 2 emulation on Macs with the M1 chip until they complete the M1 native version of Premiere Pro.
In addition to Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush and Audition have also been updated to run natively on M1 Macs for public beta testers.
In November, Photoshop Beta with M1 was released.
