AE CS4 crashing a lot
on Jun 22, 2011 at 3:05:37 pm

Hello there.
I am facing a problem for the first time today.
I have started lip syncing a character(the way rabinowich does it)
and I have been scrolling a lot on my timeline.
After effects crashes every 5 minutes.
i have 3Gb ram.
I have made some adjustments without being sure that it will help.
I increased RAM for other applications, i have checked Prevent DLL Address Space Fragmentation and i have checked Render multiple frames....I found that on adobe website.
can anybody help me?

[tolis voskopoulos] "After effects crashes every 5 minutes... i have 3Gb ram."

You barely have enough memory to run the operating system and After Effects. Exit all other applications when you work in AE.




[tolis voskopoulos] "have checked Render multiple frames....I found that on adobe website."

Don't do that. Do NOT check "Render Multiple Frames". You don't have enough memory to make use of this feature. I don't use on my After Effects machine at work, and I have 8 GB RAM.

Have you tried turning it off then on again?

i have but no result.
i restarted my pc and again nothing.
i run CS4 x32, but i have windows 7 64 bit.
could that be the problem?they told me that with 32bit application i can use max 2gb ram.
if i instal x64 bit adobe(CS5) will it be any better?

We don't know any details about your project, so it's difficult to say if it would. It could be as simple as using the wrong type of video footage in CS4, or trying to use Open GL to make rendering faster, which you should not do. The people at Adobe don't use Open GL when they render.
