Hi

I have encountered a really strange bug in afx cs6. As soon as I open a composition or create one in an empty project, it starts eating up memory, until it eats up all 8 gigs and freezes the whole system basicly.
I doesn't even stop at 5 gb (the max allowed memory usage set). It was working without any problems for a long time it just started doing this a few days ago and it makes working with it impossible. I have updated it to the latest version as that fixed some memory errors on my macbook but here i did not.
I'm running a win7 64 bit on an i7 2600k @ stock, 8 gb ram, gtx 550 ti

Any ideas how to fix it?

Have you installed any third-party plug-ins (effects, importers, etc.)?

Have you installed the latest updates?

They fix a lot of problems.

I haven't install any plugins for a long time before this started happening, and yes I am on the latest update. Is it worth a try to uninstall all plugins?

No, don't bother to uninstall anything if it wasn't causing you trouble before.

Restart After Effects and reset the preferences to their defaults.

Restoring fixed it, or to be more exact made me figure out the problem, I was having my cache file on a mac formatted hdd, and my macdrive got reinstalled a few days ago and that caused the problem.
Thank you for your help.
