Hello everyone! I am currently working in After Effects on a video that uses an evaporation effect. When I use the RAM preview function only about 200-250 frames load out of 1200. At this point After Effects stops loading a RAM preview and just plays the few seconds of video it has loaded. I am trying to watch the entire 12 seconds of the evaporation effect.
I then tried to use footage that has no effects added to it, and the same thing is happening. I recently cleaned my disk cache, and this problem started happening. I feel like that is a coincedence though.
This problem was not happening a few weeks ago and after searching the forums I have not been able to find a solution that worked. Thank you for any helpful responses you can give.

Read the link Andrew provides and understand this: 4 gigs may sound like a lot of memory to you, but it is very little in AE terms. You need more.
Sorry I some how skiped that in the FAQs. This was helpful have a wonderful day (initiate internet highfive).
