    After Effects is using so much RAM


      Im kinda new to after effects but I do know my way around. My problem is that I have a 1.2GB FRAPS file that I want to add some effects to but after adding it into the comp and clicking preview I get about 15 seconds of good video but after that the green render bar just goes away. I look at mu ram usage and that 15 seconds comes out at 11GB on the ram. Why does this happen?

      The file it 720p and 32 seconds long and comes out at 1.2GB, so shouldn't the ram file be 1.2GB? The ram im using is corsair vengeance 1600mhz ddr3 4gb x4. Im also using CS6.
