A much-requested feature, the newest version of Universe was completely rebuilt to provide a more future-proof and flexible foundation, says Maxon. The Javascript code has been replaced with C++ and the new foundational updates pave the way for more creative powerful tools in the future.

Universe 5. 1 does more than add M1 chip support. There are major bug fixes for Adobe Premier and minor enhancements made to the solution as well.
