Force After Effects To Use More Ram
on Nov 25, 2016 at 7:14:20 pm

I have16GB of ram in my PC currently, and 10 of that 16 is allocated to After Effects upon opening the program. When I am attempting to preview the comp I cannot hear any music due to After Effects only using 100 - 1000 MB of the 10,000MB it has to work with. My question is; how can I force After Effects to use more RAM.

Program: After Effects CC 2015
RAM: 16GB
Allocated RAM: 10GB
CPU: AMD FX-8350 8-Cores
GPU: AMD R9 270X Dual-X
( I know it's not the greatest for editing and what-not, but it works )

May we assume you run AE CC 2017? If so, the answer is "no". The most recent versions can't use multiprocessing, so you are using as much RAM as you can.

Huh. Try the Preferences and see how kuch it's set to use when you playback. If it's showing 10gb allocated ram, then perhaps it could be something with your computer? Setting priority to high?
