Adobe has updated its professional video editing software After Effects with built-in M1 support, which offers customers up to 3 times faster rendering speeds on Apple’s latest Macs compared to advanced Macs with Intel processors.

On M1 computers, Adobe promises up to 2x faster rendering performance and overall app response. On the M1 Ultra, Apple’s most advanced chip found in Mac Studio, Adobe says After Effects will be up to 3 times faster for video editors. One specific way Adobe has optimized After Effects is with multi-frame rendering, which utilizes all available cores on Apple Silicon to provide a playback experience that is up to 4x faster than an advanced iMac Pro with a 10-core Intel Xeon processor.


The latest version of After Effects will be rolled out to users in the coming days. Adobe also announced several other new features for After Effects and Premiere Pro such as Scene Edit Detection, Auto Color powered by AI and more.
