    RAM Disk for Cache a dumb idea?

    Arivl Level 1

      Hey folks, so I'm setting up a new system with 128GB of RAM, and I'm wondering about using 40-50GB or so as a RAMDisk. 

       

      Obviously, when working on a shot, I could just move the media there.  However, I'm wondering about pointing AE's cache at it.   I understand the consensus for Photoshop is that that's not a good idea, since it only starts cacheing things after it runs out of ram.   But it seems for AE, that there's more cacheing going on.

       

      What do you guys think?  Is using a RAM Disk a good idea?
