How could it be otherwise, finally Adobe Premiere Pro already runs natively through the neurons of Apple’s new M1 processors. Any video editing software worth its salt has to take advantage of the features of Apple’s ARM processors, and Adobe’s already does that too.
So after six months of testing the beta version, Adobe has finally just released the new version of its Adobe Premiere Pro “recoded” to run natively on the new Apple Silicon, and thus take advantage of the full potential of the M1.
Adobe just announced that its Premiere Pro video editor is finally running natively on Apple Silicons with up to 80% faster performance than Intel-based Macs, after more than six months of phased testing in beta.
Now it is 80% faster on Apple Silicon
This update also includes M1 support for Media Encoder and Character Animator. While Premiere Rush and Audition received support for M1 in April and May, respectively, After Effects is scheduled to receive a public beta for Apple Silicons later this year.
With this new version 15.4 of Adobe Premiere Pro, apart from the compatibility with Apple Silicon, it also brings new text and graphics capabilities to give narrators more creative tools when creating titles and subtitles.
A new feature launching today is Speech to Text. According to Adobe, this feature “gives creators all the tools they need to make captioned videos the new standard.”
The use of “Speech to Text” and the new subtitles workflow in Premiere Pro reduces the time required to create a transcript and subtitles for a 5 minute video by 75%, saving an editor around 52 minutes.
Adobe is also bringing new ways to search and navigate video footage. For example, you can double-click a word in the Text panel and the playhead moves to that position in the Premiere Pro timeline. “Speech to Text” includes support for 13 languages and is available with a subscription to Premiere Pro or Creative Cloud All Apps at no additional cost.
