    cs 5.5 only uses 22% of my ram, but 100% of CPU

      Hi,

       

      I'm just wondering why the ram usage is so low compared to the CPU in AE cs 5.5? I'm checking the bottom stats when the render is happening and it says only 22% of my ram is being used. Even until the very end, only 22%.

       

      That being said, people on here are recommending tons of ram, such as 32gb+, but why? If this is the case? Maybe my comp needs more complex effects such as grain generation?

       

      Thanks!
