Afx freezes and doesn´t save
on Sep 10, 2012 at 9:58:56 am

Hi,

i am having a Problem with Afx CS5.5. When working normally,it freezes and i can´t move the mouse
or do anything else, not even "force quit" the application externally. The whole computer then freezes and i have to make a restart. Also when this happens, and i open my project again after restarting the computer, Afx didnt save my last changes (even though a saved and it showed me that it was saving)

i never had this problem before. Could anyone help me on this?
here are some specs of my computer in case it helps:
-I have a Mac and i have Mac OSX 10.6.8 installed
-I have OpenGL and Multiprocessing off
-I have 4,5 GB Ram for Afx

thank you in advance!

Inés

Turn off Open GL, too. It's no good. It's so bad Adobe removed the option to use it in AE CS6.

An although you may think 4.5 GB is a lot of memory, it really isn't for AE. If you have very big layers in your comp, it can give AE trouble.

thank you for your fast answer!

so would this be a RAM Problem then? i am working on a very "light" project though with many layers an in HD,
but it is all graphic (typography and shape layers). However, what is the RAM you would recommend for Afx?

thank you in advance!

After Effects likes RAM. Lots of it. How much can you put in your machine?

For AE work, I'd draw the line at 64GB, and 96GB is just overkill, I think.
