Fabian Feiner sent me the following note:
I found out something interesting in the latest Premiere Pro Version on an M1 Apple (Mac-Studio): There is no AFF Export any more. The text is missing in the export-menu. However, the intel iMac version still has this feature. Is this a bug or a missing feature?
This is a great question, because I hadn’t noticed this yet.
I contacted the Premiere team at Adobe and learned that AAF is a feature that has not yet been ported to the new Apple silicon architecture. However, it is a high priority for Premiere and the feature should show up — soon.
But, and this is the important part, if you need AAF now you can get it by launching Premiere Pro in Rosetta. At which point, AAF export is available.
NOTE: Rosetta runs the Intel version of Premiere on Apple silicon systems.

To open Premiere Pro using Rosetta:
The next time you open Premiere, it will open the Intel version.
