Ram Preview jumps to a different Comp
on Jun 11, 2010 at 3:47:40 pm

Hi,
I have the strangest problem...
Whenever I'm doing a RAM preview on a comp is a project I'm working on, it jumps to a different comp. The different comp is actually the original comp (which I did the RAM Preview on) but with a different size.
Help will be great!
Roy

Well, that's weird.

It sounds like you may not have a lot of memory. 4GB is NOT a lot of memory in AE-Land, it's almost the bare minimum to do anything effective. It's certainly insufficient for multiproessing.

Try the following things in the order shown:
  • Turn off multiprocessing and try again. No good?
  • Do a Purge All (look it up in AE Help) and try again. No good?
  • Quit AE, start it up and try again. No good?
  • Restart your machine, open AE and try again. No good?
  • Shut down your machine, start it up, open AE and try again.

If none of those things work, you've got different problems, and we'll need LOTS more information about what you're doing. A simple lament of "AE isn't working right" rarely cuts it around here.

Perhaps you inadvertently clicked the "Alway Preview This Comp" button.

Good catch! Forget what I wrote and try that first.

Dave, I can't count the number of times your advice has saved my bacon.

Yes!
That's exactly what I did...
Thanks!
