Adobe’s video editing app Premiere Pro has been updated with native support for Macs powered by the M1 chip including the 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, and the latest 24-inch iMac. Premiere Pro is also getting some new updates including a speech-to-text feature that allows users to automatically generate a video transcript for their projects.
Adobe Premiere Pro updated with native support for M1 Macs
According to Adobe, its Creative Cloud apps like Premiere Pro run nearly 80% faster on M1 Macs than comparable Intel-based Macs.
Creative Cloud apps like Premiere Pro run over 80% faster on an M1 Mac compared to an identically configured Intel-based Mac on average, according to Adobe. Along with Premier Pro, Adobe plans to extend native support for M1 Macs to its After Effects with a public Beta later this year. Note that After Effects integration features within Premiere Pro have already been optimized to run on M1 Macs.
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.
Alongside native support for M1 Macs, the app also received a new Speech to Text feature, allowing users to automate the time-consuming aspect of creating transcriptions. Speech to Text currently features support for 13 languages.
Automatically generate a transcript and add captions to your videos to improve accessibility and boost engagement with Speech to Text. Instead of manually moving between applications and platforms, you can now complete everything inside Premiere Pro, and do it faster than other available workflows.
The update for Premiere Pro is available for download now. Speech to Text comes bundles with Premiere Pro or Creative Cloud All Apps subscriptions at no additional cost.
