iMac Running Out of Memory
on Apr 18, 2017 at 5:18:37 pm

Lately I have been running into an issue where my iMac runs out of Memory when working in Premiere Pro CC2017. I thought it was because I was using 4K .mov files so I created Proxies and am using those to edit however I still am dropping down to below 2GB of RAM and Premiere freezes up causing all my other applications to lock up as well.

What I now believe the issue is would be Sequences within Sequences. Seems whenever I try to adjust a Sequence on another Sequence, my computer runs out of Memory.

Is anyone else having this issue and have you found a workaround? Or is this a bug within Premiere?

Here are my operating specs.
- iMac 5K, 27", Late 2014, v.10.11.6 with 32GB of RAM, 4GHz i7 Processor and AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096mb Processor
- Adobe Premiere CC 2017.0.2

Thanks,

How many other applications are open at the same time and when was the last time you shut down this machine?

That was my first step, I closed out of every other application. Then shutdown and restarted my machine. Then, I made sure only Premiere was open however I still ran into that same issue. I also checked my activity monitor and I have no background memory hogs.

Another step I took was adjusting the dedicated RAM reserved for other applications within Premiere. At first I only had 3GB of RAM dedicated to other applications so Premiere was running on 29GB of my available 32GB. Then I changed that to 10GB reserved for other applications. Still no solution to the issue. Also I optimized the rendering for "Memory".

Check out this thread I started 3 years ago:
https://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/3/957622

Dennis's note about the number of assets was the answer. I created a new project and only imported my most recent sequence and that eliminated assets I didn't need. When I bought my own machine, I went with a Mac Pro and put 64GB of RAM in it for this very reason. Long-form edits, particularly documentaries, have a lot of assets so the 32GB limit on the iMac is a bit of a problem.

Hope this helps.

Hey thanks for the idea about trying to start a new project with only my most recent assets, however that did not work... I am still having issues with sequences inside sequences. When I try to adjust anything on a sequence within a sequence, Premiere locks up and sucks all my machines memory and my whole computer freezes.

This wouldn't be such of an issue if I could find a workaround for sequences within a sequence but other than exporting that clip and bringing it into my working sequence I do not know what else to try.

Thanks tho,
