Re: AE & RAM, the definitive guide

I have read this thread, and am still confused about AE RAM usage on OSX.

I have a Quad G5 with 2 gigs of RAM, OSX 10.4.8, AE Pro 7.01. I also use a little utility called "Menu Meters" that displays various things in the top menu bar (like CPU and RAM usage).

When I render in AE, Menu Meters usually tells me that I'm using about 500-600 megs of RAM, and that about 1500 megs of RAM are in the "Free" column. My processors are all at about 20-45% usage.

If AE can use 2 gigs of RAM, why is it only using 500 megs? Does this mean that adding more RAM won't change anything?

Thanks,

Mike
