I am in the process of buying an SSD for the global performance cache in AE CS6 (..which i haven't installed yet..) and am wondering if the 100 GB size-limit mentioned in this article is really correct: http://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/memory-storage.html#disk_cache ..?
I am trying to figure out if buying a disk bigger than 128 GB makes sense AE-wise.. (of course, the bigger the disk the better.. ;-) but I am trying to optimize costs..)
big thanks in advance!
The Maximum Disk Cache Size setting specifies the number of gigabytes of hard disk space to use. In After Effects CS6, the default disk cache size is set to 10% of the volume's total size, up to 100 GB.
This says that the default cache size will be set to 10% of your disk, but will not be more than 100 GB. That's just the default -- you can manually set it to whatever you want. I have mine set to 200 GB on a 240 GB SSD.
