Will look at this again on the M1 Mac. Felt a bit slow and laborious on an older Mac, but I love the concept of the tool and it will be excellent for fast turnaround work.

To my knowledge Color Finale 2 is written using Apple’s FxPlug 3 framework, and this will not run on Apple Silicon. Those plugins run within the address space of FCP, and Rosetta2 emulation cannot handle intermixed x86 and ARM64 code within the same process.
Plugin developers are re-writing their code for FxPlug 4 which will run “out of process” and should improve reliability. The plugin running in a separate firewalled host process will then communicate with FCP via an XPC. This also has other advantages such as improved threading and better render control. However until that is finished, any of the complex plugins using FxPlug will not be available for Apple Silicon. That includes Neat Video, Digital Anarchy’s Flicker Free, Imagenomic Portraiture, CoreMelt, etc.
It appears those developers are working hard on this and are making good progress, but it’s possible Apple may need to tweak some things in FxPlug 4.

Correct. Color Finale does not run on the M1 Macs yet.
