I am currently working with 17 layers in AE- CC 2014.1.1 (13.1.1) Most of the layers have multiple effects, including the "Mesh Warp,"- which happened to have been freezing my computer constantly. I finally had to change computers... First, I was unable to render these layers, because there is not enough memory space. So I went back to editing. After adding a couple of video layers, I went to play back, and got the above message: "After Effects Unable to Allocate Enough Memory to Render Current Frame"
I changed my "cache" folder to my external hard drive. I also upped the cache space from 23MB to 50MB. But I am still getting this error.
In terms of the Mesh warp: Once i brought the effect to the video file, and tried to move the grid, I got the rainbow spinny ball. It went away after a while. As soon as I clicked on ANYTHING- i got the wheel again. This continued until I "Forced Quit." I don't know what thats about...
This is the info for the Composition Settings/ computer I am working on. i am trying to give as much information as possible. This is for my Senior Thesis! Can anyone please help me ASAP?
What are these layers you're working with? What size? What format? What Codec? What color space?
What happens if you turn on Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously (reserving at least one core for other programs)?
I also upped the cache space from 23MB to 50MB. But I am still getting this error.
I assume you mean GB, not MB...
What happens if you save to version 12 and try to work on it there? (If you don't have an older version installed, try it: Creative Cloud Help | Install, update, or uninstall apps)
Have you tried rebooting your machine recently? Do other programs/apps//software run normally?
