After Effects keeps using up all Ram even when ideal
on Sep 19, 2013 at 5:44:25 pm

I've been using Ae for the past 5 months with no issues.
All of a sudden, I keep getting "Unable to allocate memory..." error even on basic compositions.
The annoying thing is that, when I open up task manager to preview my memory usage ,Aftereffects.exe keeps increasing like a time bomb until it uses up all my memory even when AE is ideal.

I used to be able to handle complex compositions ,now i cant even handle a simple text layer without using up all of my memory.

Ive tried everything - disabling multiprocessing ,resetting preferences, using 8 bpc,purging... but nothing seems to fix it .

system stats = 8gb ram, windows 7, i7, Nvidia GTX660m
The same problem is being experienced by this user :

The After Effects CC (12.2) update fixes a common cause of such memory allocation errors:

Let us know how it works for you after you've installed the update.
