Our SDKs have been published so Adobe video technology partners can update their effects, plug-ins, and panels to work with Premiere Pro on Apple M1. Check with your plug-in maker to see if they have a version ready for Apple silicon.

  1. The Adobe Premiere Pro CC MacBook Pro Keyboard Cover from LogicKeyboard makes controlling Adobe Premiere Pro CC a lot simpler and faster. It is ideal for post-production facilities, professional video editing houses, and any editor who requires all the custom key commands to be readily accessible from a dedicated, clearly labeled, and color-coded keyboard.
  2. Premiere Pro performs better on M1 MacBook Pro than on 11th gen Intel laptops. In the latest round of tests, it turns out that M1 MacBook Pro runs Adobe Premiere Pro video editing software faster.
  3. Current Premiere Pro took just 50 seconds, which is an improvement of 11 seconds over the Beta and over 4-5 minutes over the 16” Intel-based MacBook Pro. Image Credit: Adobe Working with HEVC/H.265 footage Premiere can now take advantage of the M1’s hardware processing.

Premiere Pro performance on Apple M1 was already impressive when we first released the public Beta last December. As the latest Pfeiffer Report benchmark results show, it has only gotten better. From first launch to final exports, everything is faster — on average 77 percent faster than comparable Intel-based systems — and editing is buttery smooth.

Adobe Premiere Pro For Macbook Pro

With a longstanding commitment to leveraging the latest hardware advances, the Premiere Pro Beta digs deep into the new Apple architecture, allowing editors and creators to tackle big projects on Macs with the new M1 chip that rival the performance of high-end workstations. Pfeiffer’s testing shows marked improvements for importing, playback, and exports. For example, XAVC S 4K footage imported 187 percent faster and encoding to ProRes 422 was 129 percent faster. A demanding, highly compressed format like iPhone 4K footage at 60 fps plays smoothly on the Premiere Pro timeline.


Other performance highlights:

  • Launch 50 percent faster
  • Open projects 77 percent faster
  • Save projects 168 percent faster
  • Gradient wipe effect 90 percent faster
  • Lens Flare effect 66 percent faster

Adobe Sensei meets Apple Neural Engine

By tapping into different parts of the Apple M1 chipset, the Premiere Pro Beta shines in other areas as well. Optimizing our Adobe Sensei AI and ML features for the Apple Neural Engine provides next-level performance gains. For example, Scene Edit Detection, powered by Adobe Sensei, is at least 430 percent faster on an Apple M1 13” MacBook Pro than an Intel-powered system with similar specifications. Fine-tuning Premiere Pro for the M1’s Unified Memory improves overall efficiency of the application, and our own testing shows significantly longer battery life.

What was tested

The Pfeiffer Report compared the Premiere Pro Beta on 13” MacBook Pros with 2TB SSD hard drives. The M1 systems had the Apple M1 chipset with 8-core CPUs and GPUs and 16GB of Unified Memory. The Intel-based systems had 2.0 GHz quad-core CPUs and 16GB on onboard memory.

The tests included XAVC 4K media at 25, 50, and 100p, and XAVC S-I 4K 50p, ProRes 422, and iPhone 12 (HEIC) 4K footage. For more detailed information M1 benchmark testing and results, see the full Pfeiffer Report here.

Note: for H.264 and HEVC, encoding performance gains were marginal, thanks to our existing optimizations for Intel Quick Sync. But even here, Premiere Pro on the Apple M1 held a slight edge.
