Will Capture One run on my ARM-based Mac?
The Apple M1 is an ARM-based system that has been introduced by the Apple company in November 2020 for the new generation of their gadgets (MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini).
At the moment, Capture One supports machines with the Intel-based architecture. At the same time, we continually strive to make Capture One accessible on the newest hardware and operating systems to ensure the best performance and compatibility for the new ARM-based Mac computers.
NOTE: Native ARM support will be released in one of the next updates to Capture One 21.
In the meantime, Capture One will run on ARM-based Mac computers using Rosetta 2 emulation platform although with one known limitation concerning tethering. This issue will be addressed in upcoming releases of Capture One 20 and Capture One 21. In the meantime, if tethering is critical to your workflow we discourage you from using it until we release the updated version of Capture One for ARM-based Macs.
