    I can confirm can confirm that tethering on my M1 Air works with my Nikon Z6 on the latest macOS and C1 20.

    So nice to see both PS and DR released their (non-beta) versions with M1 support today. C'mon C1, we can do this!

    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

    I tried installing the new update and it gives me the twirling symbol and stalls and had to exit to avoid crash.  I miss using Capture One but am at the point where I am going to cancel my subscription plan.

    Hi Barry, 

    Thanks for your comment. 

    We know it's important to many of our users to get support for Apple M1 computers. We want your experience of our software to be seamless – and that means responding to new innovations on the market. We’re working hard to optimize and bring you full support for M1 within the next four months. Please stay tuned.

    If there is something not seamless, it's the constant tethering problem with updates...

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    They officially announced that they will support Apple Silicon within 4 months.

    Thanks. But four months? What are they doing? I was really impressed with C1 after migrating a year ago from LR. But I've been really disappointed hearing tales of customer service woes, bad updates, and now this.

    Well I can tell you what they were doing, nothing. A big fat zero. They didn’t think M1 will be good so they haven’t started to work on that until recently. Otherwise they would have acquired a DTK kit from Apple and announce M1 support quickly like others did, ie Affinity. Of course some will come saying “well you don’t need to buy M1” “do you think it is easy to move to M1” or all the other lame defence lines for C1 but nothing can save them. C1 has dropped the ball in my eyes, they had really some nice features etc but now others have caught up already if not surpassed C1

    I couldn't believe how fast Lightroom was, crazy when I moved to C1 as I found LR slow, now it's swapped.

    It takes longer because of ARM version and metal API which are caused by ignorance, lazyness, lack of innovation. Sad.

    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.

    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.

    I have cancelled my subscription and moved back to Lightroom & Photoshop - this has been a most unpleasant experience....

    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 :)

    Exactly. Vote with your wallet. I'm getting emails at the moment asking me to upgrade... to a program that doesn't run on my computer. And to announce an update without M1 compatibility... Doesn't inspire confidence. If Lightroom creates half decent layers & mask tools, C1 will lose a lot of 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.

    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.

    "Running Capture One 20 will be possible with Rosetta 2 on ARM-based Macs."

    Yet one more reason (there are now several) why I will never be buying from this company ever again. Yes C1 20 runs under Rosetta. But as I understand this, C1 20 will never be M1 native. So again we are being forced to upgrade to a native version or stay behind the times.

    My concern if Apple changes Rosetta or stops supporting it then C1 20 users are out in the cold yet again.

    In this market, there are plenty of other viable options.

    Hi,

    @Wayne Large do You know any good alternative for tethering shooting? 

    That's the only thing why I can't switch to anything.

    Tolga, not everybody is a beta tester here nor you should be sharing that information as it is under NDA.

    Sadly I don't know of any except sometime individual camera manufacturers do their own software but even then not many.

    But I'm on a Mac and I now use Apple Photos which has more than enough DAM features for me (I'm not a Pro) so only need the basics. That is free with any Mac. Then I couple that with Affinity Photo which is as good as Photoshop in my view and again more than enough for a non Pro. That is cheap and a one off payment. It has more features than C1.

    I think if Tethering is crucial then you are stuck, unless I've missed something?
