    Premiere CC 2014 eating up RAM

    jon6569 Level 2

      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)

      OS 10.9.5

      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.
