My AE is completely updated to 18.104.22.168 on my 8 Core Mac Pro 3,1 with 18GB memory and NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT graphics card. Running OSX Mavericks 10.9.3. I've been told AE 12.2 fixed this problem. It's a brand new install of AE without any third party plugins installed yet. All I was doing was an auto trace on a 2500x1900 layer which I've done a million times on my old dual core laptop with 8GB memory with no issues. Help?
Auto tracing is very memory intensive, so can create problems in long comps. How long is your comp? Have you had previous success with similarly long comps?
I'm just tracing a single frame 2389x1920. What is confusing is I just finished a project doing similar auto traces on a frame (to create masks in order to animate a line drawing "drawing itself" w/trapcode 3d stroke etc...). And I did all those on my crappy old laptop with 8GB of RAM. I've been told maybe update my graphics card driver, but the one from the NVIDIA website isn't compatible with OS 10.9.3, only 10.9.2, although I'm not sure that would have anything to do with it since it's RAM that it thinks is the issue not VRAM. I'm up to date on CUDA so that's fine.
