Will Capture One run on my ARM-based Apple computer?

    I will upgrade first for a fee when the new CPU architecture is supported, that's for sure. MfG

    I spend some more time with Capture One 21 on the MacBook Pro m1. Its not useable at all. A LOT of weird stuff is going on. Color Picker I mentioned earlier, but also a lot of random crashes and "beachballs".

    Its really a shame. The move to ARM was announced quite some time ahead. There been developer kits for quite some time now. Capture One COMPLETELY ignoring new tech. They should have moved to the metal API quite some time ago. Smaller developer like Affinity hat ARM support from day one!

    If you have a m1 Mac, DONT buy Capture One till there is a native version. The original post from Lily is a complete joke. Telling it runs under Rosetta and the only known issue is tethering. 

    EVERYONE who spend a few minutes giving it a try will have LOTS of issues. 

    Shame on you!

    4 months, wow. Almost a year after Apple has announced their switch to M processors and distributed DTKs to developers.

    Important was the seamless price increase to achieve last minute panic purchases

    Actually you are wrong. It is nearly a year. Don't forget Apple has distributed to developers a DTK to get and build their softwares. PO hasn't done this, if they'd have done like others, by now C1P would be running on M1.

    So I'd say, cancel your subscription and move over to other softwares.

    Any updates on this? I find C1 unusable on my M1 Mac Mini. So slow and laggy. 

    I don't want to have to go back to Lightroom.

    How long do we have to wait? It's almost Q2 and yet Capture One Pro still doesn't support Apple Silicon! I thought it was very clear that they promised to support it in early 2021.

    @Lily Is there any date planned for the ARM-based Macs? It's been couple of months since the release of the new Macs but there is nothing, no news, no updates related to this topic. I think people are interested in this topic and the team should be more vocal about this subject.

    We’re working hard to optimize and bring you full support for M1 within the next four months.

    Yikes, that puts us out until July. 🤬 Talk about slow. That Project Management team needs to manage better. If I knew it would take this long I wouldn't have paid for C1 21, and just stuck with C1 20.

    Well the good thing is, as consumers we have absolute powers with our choices. There are great software around and almost all of them are good enough for more than average users. If a company doesnt serve you well, you move on to a new one. At the end of the day, it is the company who loses, not you :)

    The color picker works under Big Sur on my 2017 intel iMac, but unfortunately it doesn't on the M1 Macbook Pro running C1 20, as other reported.

    Hello Maryna,

    Is there any update or e.t.a for the M1 native version of 21? It’s been three months now since this thread was started and not a hint of an update.

    Affinity Photo, Photoshop, Resolve and every other pro apps etc have all had native M1 updates from day 1 that run sooooo well. 

    I’m about to collect my new fujifilm gfx 100s and I want/need to use capture one on my M1’s. I don’t have any intel machines.

    plus I would imagine you want to take advantage of all that power on the M1’s.

     

    Thanks

    Really? I don't have these limitations on my MacBook Air M1.... Capture One 20 runs at least as well here as on the i7 of the predecessor, if not minimally better.

    I bet You will slide on Rosetta 2 as long as possible.... This is fake support :D

    I will upgrade when I get Metal API in C1.

    C1P 20 with M1 Mac works fine but I really waiting for the native version. But It's not clear whether they will support it within early 2021 or later. 

     

    Also, OpenGL is outdated especailly for Mac as they ditched and created Metal API. I have no idea how long do we have to wait for Metal API to be supported. I really feel C1P is not using all of the power.

    Crashes on Mac Mini M1 (Big Sur 11.2.3). Does not open the library from the Intel version.

    I run C1 under Rosetta on an MacBook Pro m1 16GB.

    I have problems with the color picker. I most of the time can't pick any color range. Sometimes it works so, very strange.

    At I have NO issue with tethering my Sony a7r3

    Strange you only mention tether problems.

    @Jonathan Affinity also has bugs in the current version, e.g. the PDF exporter of Affinity Designer crashed in a project so that I had to go the long way round to even get the brochure into the printer. Then the programmes have been starting very slowly lately.

    Using C21 with the M1 MBA. I'm having trouble with exporting and healing layer adjustments not being applied. Also having issues with the color editor and picking colors. You have to click it a couple times and switch back and forth from other tools to get it to work. Very strange behavior. Very annoying.

    I have the same problem and also described above. I initially thought it was just with the skin tone, but it is a problem throughout the Color Editor. Why doesn't C1 come around the corner with an update here, are the programmers on lockdown? I buy so in any case not a new version.

    More than 6 months since the release of the M1 chip and still no support.  I am paying the full monthly subscription fee only to have software that is super unstable and almost unusable on my Mac Mini with the M1 chip.  Really??? Adobe already supports the M1 chip.  I am not even sure why I even bother paying the monthly subscription....  This is clearly not a priority for C1 - yet they will gladly continue to take my money.

    I'm still staying with C1 and won't be switching to Adobe under any circumstances. I have never taken out a subscription and am more than happy to do so. I only pay when there are new functions that make it worth my while and if a programme is only offered by subscription, then I will no longer upgrade and look for something else at my leisure.

    It "works" but I am running on the highest speced Apple Silicon MBP and it is almost unusable. Once they finally switch to Metal2 it should be much better.

    The program is unusable on my new MacBook M1.  Beachball city.   Runs perfectly on Lightroom and DXO.  I much prefer using C-One so hopefully the upgrade will come soon.  Until then, the program sits in the drawer.

    Hi Lily. Any updates? All us M1 owning C1 users are hoping for some good news. Most of us are professionals that rely on your software. Please help us.

    Marcus,

    The application runs. As in, you can start it. It does not crash.

    When you try to move between a grid view and a single image, you get a spinning beachball and a significant delay (read multiple seconds). When you try to move between the image and the sliders, again beachball and a significant delay, when you try to zoom in 1:1, beach ball and significant delay.  While it does eventually perform all these tasks without crashing, it is not something that can be used by anyone trying to edit images. 

    So, what I am saying is if you use C1 for work, stay away from C1 on Apple Silicon.

    I was able to shoot tethered on the base MacBook Air M1 laptop and Capture One 21 for Sony. I didn't spend enough time to test many functions, but I was able to take pictures remotely, change ISO and f-stop.

    Overall Capture One works well so far for me and the only major problem I've experienced is when using the healing brush often could cause pixels glitches both in Capture One and when exporting the picture from C1 to Photoshop.

    One thing I did and it seems to help with the performance for both Photoshop (Intel version) and C1 was to disable the hardware acceleration (use of OpenCL).

    Capture One 21 (14.0.2) was crashing/freezing on my Mac Mini M1 (16GB 1TB MacOS 11.2.2) when closing. Every time I had to force quit C1. When I tried your suggesting, setting both display and processing Hardware Acceleration (Use OpenCL for) to Never seems to help. Capture One closes normally now.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Lot’s of greetings, Dennis 🇳🇱

    I did some testing.

    Export of 20 raws to JPG 100%; 300ppi; 80%, from EOS R took half the time on Windows version than on MAC OS. 34sec vs. 54...

    Same machine: Ryzen 5 2600, 16gb ram,SSD, RX580 8GB, it's Hackintosh.

    I think it's due to lack of OpenCL updates on Mac.

    I also found out that export on integrated GPUs (MBP 13' 2015) is faster when Hardware acceleration is off.

    I had to share it ;)

    @Marcus Böhm, styles work pretty fast for me on C21. Here's a short video of viewing and applying styles on a MacBook Air M1 with 8gb RAM, connected to an external monitor with a bunch of programs running in the background and the session being hosted on an external hard drive going through a hub.
