AAF-imported ProRes .MOV files don't work, but AAF-imported ProRes .MXF files do?
I'm starting a new thread for an issue that originally started here:
The original post (the title of which I can no longer edit, hence my opening this new thread) outlined an issue that I thought was a general Apple Silicon AAF import problem. But as I dig deeper with troubleshooting the issue, I figured out that the actual problem is that only ProRes .MOV files don't work when imported into Premiere via AAF on Apple Silicon machines. ProRes MXF files, however, import fine via AAF.
Again, this is a showstopping bug. We simply can't use Premiere on our Apple Silicon machines because of this, as we have to conform Video AAFs from Avid editors in Premiere for finishing and delivery.

No, Rosetta2 is not the issue. I mentioned this specifically in the original thread. It does not matter if Premiere is running in Rosetta2 or not. The problem is that Premiere on Apple Silicon barfs on ProRes .mov files, but ONLY when they are brought into the project via AAF. Even if you import the AAF on an Intel machine, then open the same project on an Apple Silicon machine, the issue still occurs.

You could always run Premiere under Rosetta2 emulation
