    CS6 Mutiprocessing Problems


      I was editing a video an while playing with the scale I went to RAM preview and it wouldn't work so I closed it down and reopened it as this problem has happened a few times and this has been the fix. I then went to RAM preview from the beggining and my computer crashed, no bluescreen the monitors just went blank and the BIOS popped up. I then reopened my project and RAM previewed from the beggining and it didn't start it just said requesting frame 2 of ... I then played with a few of the prefrences eg. clearing the cache and purging memory and It still didn't work. I then disabled multiprocessing and RAM previewing worked again though I would like multiprocessing to work as It is alot faster. I then tried restarting my computer and reinstalling AE but still no luck. Does anybody know a fix for this? Also rendering does not work either with multiprocessing enabled.

          That sounds a lot like your system is running rather unstable. Try the same settings in after effects without overclocking your cpu, that might solve the problem.

            That does indeed sound like your computer has a problem far beyond After Effects; it's just that After Effects is working you computer hard enough to expose the problem. You may have bad RAM, inadequate cooling, or an inadequate power supply (just to mention a few possibilities).

              Hi Semyel,


              edit:  Double check the memory you are using is compatible with the motherboard:  If it is:  try just loading the XMP profile in the bios for your gskill ram.  Re-run the ram preview..


              Also you didn't mention the cooling solution you are using for your CPU, it might be not be up to the task..


              I assuming you have run something like intel's CPU stress test to verify the stablity of your overclock of CPU?
