    Made preference changes, but still getting the Ram preview needs 2 or more frames to play back.


      I'm new to After Effects CS6 and am working on a very simple Kinetic Typography project. I don't have a lot of memory, but this is a really simple project, so I'm wondering if maybe I'm just not using the work area correctly. Every once in while I can get the project to RAM preview, but only for a few seconds. Most of the time I get the "Ram preview needs 2 or more frames to play back" error message. I have pasted my sytem info and setting info bleow. Thanks for any insight! 



      I have checked the Render Multiple Fames Simultaneously box and have set the seetings at:
