AE CS3 Keeps Crashing upon invoking plugin at hi-res

i am new to AE. trying to render an AE file but AE keeps crashing with this error:
After Effects error: crash occurred while invoking effect plug-in "Ripple".
same for another plugin I used
After Effects error: crash occurred while invoking effect plug-in "Brightness-Contrast".
Details : I am running AE CS3 126.96.36.1998, on MacBook Pro 2.8Ghz, MacOSX 10.5.7 (4GB RAM, 512 VRAM)
My file resolution is 2048X1556, pixel aspect ratio : 2
(i also tried a square pixel aspect ratio, but it still crashes. in playback AND in rendering)
Interesting thing to note: when I reduce the resolution from "full" to "quarter", it doesn't crash.
Any thoughts on how to solve this? am designing titles for a friend's film.
I have always been doing it on Combustion/FCP but find AE more user-friendly, perhaps because I am extremely comfortable with Photoshop.
