This is a notice about changes to GPU and DV/HDV support on macOS. These changes apply to the 14.0 releases of Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder.
CUDA support is no longer available on macOS and Adobe is deprecating support for OpenCL. We recommend transitioning to Apple Metal, including systems running NVIDIA graphics.
Starting with the 14.0 release, Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder default to Apple Metal graphics rendering on macOS. This applies to new and existing projects. Apple Metal provides a modern and unified render pipeline for all users on that platform and will be the focus of our development on macOS going forward.
Starting with macOS 10.15 Catalina, Premiere Pro no longer supports DV and HDV capture over FireWire.
Users who still need access to DV/HDV ingest have the following options:
As with all major updates for operating systems and production software we recommend you test before transitioning. Don’t update in the middle of a project and always make backups before doing updates.
