Motion,memory and page ins/outs
on Jul 11, 2006 at 8:32:24 pm

Hey all,
I got a little question. after using Motion for a while and exporting a mov my G5 mac seems like a MacPlus.
I checked Activity viewer and low and behold
Page ins/outs 68700/118224
only a restart gets the machine back to where it should be. How can I prevent this do I need more ram, is there a secret, or is it just Motion?
file: DV 11 layers with 2 layers each and image masks 1600 frames long
top layer with fixed resolution checked
Dual 2.5 G5
4 Gigs ram
6800 Ultra
23"cinema display
thanks for your help

Sadly, more RAM is probably the fix. Check to see if you have any page outs before starting Motion, as this would indicate a strange problem.

Yeah I was afraid of that. I'm waiting to max out my ram till WWDC to hear the announcement of new machines, to figure out if it's worth it.

thanks
