I am on an M1 iMac with Photoshop running in Universal mode and I can call the NIK 5 filters even if they are Intel only. I have Rosetta installed.
I suspect that DxO have updated the actual plugins to Universal apps that can call Intel applications, Topaz did the same in the early days of Apple Silicon before they converted the full applications to Universal.
Why DxO have released new versions of the filters and gone back to Intel only is anyone’s guess!
Thanks for the work around, but Photoshop runs slower in Rosetta mode. What is the point of spending all that money on a new, faster computer if I have to handicap it by running a simulated versions of Photoshop just to get the plug ins to work?
Will/Is DXO working on Apple silicon native versions of the Nik Filters? Many photographers use Macs for their work and Nik filter have to run on the new hardware or they will die.
I’m sorry but I gave up waiting for DXO for the native version for apple silicon. This is an unacceptable gap for a product with a rather expensive license.
I am looking for alternatives for NIK Collection and Film Pack… because they don’t answer to customers asking about roadmap to be ready to work native ( no rosetta ) as photoshop plugin.
