    Texture Memory/Multiprocessing

    Nightjar Level 1

      Hi,

       

      In the Preview menu there is an option for "Texture Memory". What exactly is it for an how high should I set it?

      (I can only go up to 2900MB eventhough I have a 4 GB Card, is that normal?)

       

      In the multiprocessing menu I can enable "Render multiple frames simultaniously" --> I guess that speeds

      op my work flow. Ho high should I set "Ram Allocation per backgorund CPU"? Defaul is 4 GB

       

      Thanks for helping.

       

      Cheers

          Regarding what texture memory is, see this.

           

          The setting within After Effects is limited to a fraction of the total VRAM on your GPU because the VRAM is also needed for other things (e.g., your monitor, other applications using the GPU). A good rule of thumb is to set the texture memory for After Effects to 70% of the VRAM if After Effects is the only GPU-heavy application that you're using.
