CS5 RAM preview issues
on Aug 1, 2012 at 10:16:02 pm

I'm currently trying to ram preview and it only renders one frame. Purging doesn't do anything, but when I restart AE it work for 5-10 previews, then once again stops working.

I have 9 gigs of ram and the project is simple and shouldn't be particularly taxing on the system.

Thanks for any input

Officially, it's a memory related issue though I'm doubtful that that's the only cause for this issue.

What are your MP settings like in the prefs? You could be setting aside too little RAM per CPU.

If the comp has a simple structure then try playback via Spacebar. If you have a fast drive and a decent GPU, it's pretty quick and saves the hassle of trying to troubleshoot the issue.

Unfortunately I'm working with audio, so a space bar preview won't work for me.

I suggest that you do one of the following -
1) rename the AEP
2) copy/paste the layers into a new comp
3) use Dynamic Link to PPro and use PPro's timeline for your playback

And as suggested earlier, it would be useful if you told us your MP settings.
