    Hey guys

    I have a quick question Im using Vista 64 with AE CS4 and when I launch AE I notice the splash screen it says USING 4 GIGS. But I have 8 Gigs on my system, is there something Im missing or is that CS4 doesn’t support more then 4 gigs??

    Well, AE CS4 is a 32bit app, so it can use at most 4GIG per process (and 1 process per cpu/core).

    If you want your 8Gigs used by After, go to “Preferences > Memory management” and turn on multiprocessing.

    AE will let you configure on much ram you want tu use on how much core/cpu you want.

    But remember, as it’s a 32Bit app, it will only be able to use up to 4gig of not contiguous memory, so you’ll still have to be carefull with the “buffer memory error” when dealing with very large footage (large == high resolution)
