    I had forgotten about this when I wrote my response on the Facebook group, sorry. The ON1 Photo RAW 2022 program is a Universal program and it does run natively on Apple Silicon. However, there is one piece that runs in the background which is still written in Intel code. That could be the reason for the warning you are seeing. I've had Rosetta 2 installed since I got the computer and was still running 2021 so I've never see the warning come up in my installs of 2022.

    Go ahead and install the software then download and install Rosetta 2 for that background program and you'll be set.

    WHAAAAAT?????

    In order to install Photo Raw 2022 ***NATIVELY*** on a Mac M1, I need to install ROSETTA??? (thus NOT running NATIVELY)

    I bought Photo RAW 2022 BECAUSE IT SAID IT'S ***APPLE NATIVE*** for M1 Macs, so what is this Rosetta nonsense? Why do you advertize APPLE M1 NATIVE if it NEEDS ROSETTA TO RUN????????????????????????

    If you want to buy a car that works on gas, you ask the salesman: "This car runs on gas and not on diesel, right?" and the salesman says "Yes it runs on gas".  You purchase the car based on that info, but then you find out that the car won't start. You contact the salesman and he says: "In order to start the car and run it like if it ran on gas, you have to put diesel in it".

    This kind of sounds like: "Yes it's APPLE M1 NATIVE, but you NEED Rosetta to run it"

    Did you read my comment above? ON1 Photo RAW 2022 is a Universal program and it does run natively on Apple's M1 processors.

    However, the installer itself needs Rosetta 2 to run.

    You do not need Rosetta to RUN the program but you do need it to INSTALL the program.

    Not impressed. What is this wordgame advertizing nonsense?  APPLE M1 NATIVE means NO NEED TO INSTALL Rosetta

    You do realize that ON1 does not write the Installer program, right? That comes from Apple. They write what is needed to tell the installer how to install the program but they DO NOT write the installer program itself.

    Nic,

    I just let the product manager know that the version of the Installer they are using is still running Intel code and suggested they upgrade that to a newer version. I'm not an employee of the company, just another user like yourself who is trying to help. It will be up to them to make a decision on this.

    Download and install Rosetta 2, run the Photo RAW 2022 installer, then remove Rosetta if you think you'll never need it again. It's not that big a deal IMO.

    Hi,

     

    Let me trghow in my 2-bits worth of real life experience.

    I have a MacBook Pro M1 Max chip. Yes I had to install Rosetta prior to using ON1.

    Did some digging, and I could be wrong but my findings are that you need Rosetta to run the ON1 installer dmg program. Once ON1 is installed, it doesn't use Rosetta unless there is a plugin that might require Rosetta.

    I realise that "running native" and "install Rosetta first" might sound conflicting but in the end of the day ON1 runs perfectly smooth fast and reliable on the M1 Max chip. With or without Rosetta I really don't care what's happening deep inside the machine as long as the performance is up to expectations.

     

    Keep going On1 you're doing great and the latest update improved the system again a big step

    Why on earth do you people advertise your ON1 software as being M1 native when the installer itself, I don't care who makes it, still requires Rosetta to be able to let you install ON1? The only reason I got ON1 is because it was M1 Native, according to your website. Also because I did not want to install that Rosetta garbage so now I am $7.99 short because you did not explain things properly and I had to cancel the subscription. I am NOT and refuse to install your software until your installer is not dependent of Rosetta as I do not want to have that emulator on my Mac slowing things down. No thank you.

    Do you think ON1 has any control over Apple’s software? The installer is not written by ON1. It is written by Apple. You are mad at the wrong company. And why are you out any money? Rosetta 2 is FREE. You can trash it after you run the installer. All ON1’s software is Apple Silicon native. Rosetta is not required to run their programs once they have been installed.

    You are misinformed about the emulator. It will not slow anything down which is not using it. Only the Installer program uses it.

    Also, you are not talking to the company here, only other users like yourself. Being angry here is directing your anger at more people who have no control over Apple’s decisions nor ON1’s.

    Hermes, you might also be interested to know that Rosetta is NOT an emulator. It is a translator. It does its job up front, the first time an Intel program is run on an M1 system The Intel code gets translated into Apple Silicon code which gets saved with the program. The next time that program is run Rosetta does not come into play again. It does not slow down your system. It will require some small amount of time to do the translation but that is a one-time-only event.
