Memory filling up too fast?
Hope I am posting this in the right section and hope I can get some
feedback. I'm not even sure if this is a windows problem, but it is a
good place to start.
See my system info for my system specs but the main point of this post
is regarding my RAM. This system is the first time I've had 4 GBs of
ram, and also the first time I'm using a 64-bit OS.
My problem relates to the programs of the Adobe CS3 (That's CS3 and not
CS4). I've been doing alot of editing in Premiere Pro, which itself
isn't the problem. MY project in PPro is fairly complex, but only about
20 minutes long and nothing out of the oridinary. The problem begins
when I open up any other app to do some related work, like After
Effects, my RAM fills up very quickly and I can't understand why. I look
at my Sidebar RAM indicator and it shows I'm using nearly all 4 Gigs of
my RAM and the system performance suffers. Why is this? Often After
Effects will have basically a small clip open, nothing compared to what
Premiere has open but just those 2 apps will be nearly maxing out my
RAM, where as PPro alone maybe takes up 2 to 2.3GBs or so.
By contrast when I was on XP 32bit with 2 Gigs of RAM, on the same
system I might add, I could have those 2 programs open, plus something
like Maya, an IE instance, and so on and it wouldn't even phase the
Do I have something set wrong?
