Mac M1/M2 Users with Premiere Pro 2024 or newer installed:

As of Premiere Pro 2024 (released on 11 October, 2023): ADOBE VIDEO AND AUDIO PRODUCTS NO LONGER SUPPORT ROSETTA

Starting with version 24.0, Adobe video and audio products no longer support Rosetta emulation (Intel versions running on Apple M1/M2).  Please be aware that the Creative Cloud desktop still shows the Rosetta option on M1/M2 machines, but this will still launch the native Apple Silicon version. Intel versions can only be run on Mac Intel machines.

The Open using Rosetta option is no longer available in the Get Info window. This means that the Motion Array legacy Plugins for Premiere Pro will no longer work if you have updated to Premiere Pro 2024 or newer.

However, you can install previous versions of Premiere Pro to use Rosetta. See here to learn how to install a previous version of Premiere Pro or other Adobe Creative Cloud applications.

See more about these changes from Adobe here


Windows users with any Premiere Pro version OR

Mac M1/M2 users with Premiere Pro 2023 or earlier installed:

If you haven't already downloaded, and installed the Plugins for Premiere Pro, you can do so here
Before you download & install the Plugins, we recommend watching this handy YouTube tutorial we made here, to learn how to download, install and remove the Red-X watermark from the Plugins:



After downloading and installing the Plugins, if you don't see them, please double check the Video Transitions & Effects folders. Plugins should be installed there.



If you are still unable to see the Plugins, it may be due to a different reason.

Kindly note that the new Mac M1 or M2 systems will require you to open Premiere Pro using Rosetta in order to use Plugins.


Please try the following to open Premiere Pro using Rosetta, if you are using a new Mac M1 or M2 systems:

  1. Go to Applications

  2. Select the chevron to expand the Adobe Premiere Pro folder, then right click on the Adobe Premiere Pro 2023.app and select Get Info:


3. From the Get Info window that pops-up, check on the option Open using Rosetta


4. Open Premiere Pro again, and look for the Plugins

Alternatively, you can open your apps using Intel from the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App, which should have the same affect as Opening using Rosetta:



Please Note: If you do not see the Plugins after opening Premiere Pro using Rosetta, please download the Plugins and install them again from here: https://motionarray.com/plugins/premiere-pro/
