What is the best way to clear my ram or memory without re-booting, I have a 2009 imac with 6gigs of memory, and do alot of video editing, so would like to clear memory often...

Usually Mac OS X will clear the memory as needed, but if you want to do it your self, try a google search for "purge ram mac" .

IT's something simple like typing purge into terminal, but I don't remember off hand.

Otherwise you can use something like OnyX to do these sorts of maintenance

2 x3Ghz Quad MacPro
9 GB RAM
Mac OS X 10.5.5
QT 7.5.5
FCP 6.0.5
AJA Kona 3 (6.0.1 drivers)
G-Speed XL 12 RAID
