IMPROVE COMPATIBILITY WITH M1 MACS. PLAYBACK & EXPORT GLITCH
Major glitching issues in playback and exporting on Apple Silicon computers. I have an M1 24" iMac, and I've seen people with this same issue on other Silicon models. It seems to have to do with the SoC architecture of the M1 chips. Premiere is not able to fully recognize the GPU in the computer, and so it doesn't know how to properly handle the footage. This is a serious issue that creates unusable videos, and will cause many to move to FCP or Davinci if not solved. Thank you!

This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed swiftly, at present I and my colleagues are working largely on M1 iMacs and it is simply impossible to encode a video from them when the source material is on a NAS and receive a usable output. We've had to have editors who are normally on Intel based Macs and Windows PCs move around whenever someone needs to actually encode a video because of this.
I would be curious to know if your source material is typically stored on a NAS, and if so, does this issue only occur when working with source material that is on a NAS and isn't stored locally? Likewise, do you run into this issue running both the native Apple Silicon versions of Adobe's apps, or do you run into them when running Adobe under Rosetta 2 as well? In my experience the glitches only occur when my source material is on a NAS rather than some form of directly attached storage, and the glitches occur whether or not I'm using the native Apple Silicon version of Adobe's apps or running them via Rosetta 2.
