When I work in Premiere CC 2014.1, as was the case in prior versions, it is soaking up my RAM. Below are screen shots of when I first open Premiere, up to about 10 minutes later, when almost all of my available memory is shown as used (Premiere gets pokey when working in the timeline at that point). I have no other programs open.
I'm on a 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon mid 2010 Mac Pro
32 GB of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2048 MB (this card is a recent upgrade...was having the same issue with the previous ATI Radeon)
Apple Pro Res 422 media
I have Preferences>Memory set to optimize for Memory and have 28GB available to Premiere.
I'm not using any third party plugins on the timelines I'm working on (nor any effects), though I do have plugins loaded.
I have had this issue when working on my internal Seagate 7200RPM drives as well as my external eSata RAID drives.
Does anyone else have this issue? Any thoughts as to what might be happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
having the same problems in CC 2015.
Our specs aren't that different from yours, except we're Windows. We've been experiencing it our latest feature for the past 3 months or so, and we tried moving it locally off our raid and we tried moving to different stations. Same problem no matter what.
I Suppose Adobe never fixed the problem.
This issue resolved for me when I upgraded to Yosemite. Sorry you're still having issues.
