    After Effects uses a lot of memory (RAM) when doing simple jobs

      Hello,

       

      When I open AE , make a new project, import a simple 20mb mp4 file to it and start the playback of the clip (RAM Preview) , the RAM consumption of After Effects gets up to 5GB, and the usage of the CPU gets up to 50%!

      This is a really simple job, and I don't know why it takes so many resources, this wasn't happening to me before.

       

      I'm on Windows 8.1, I'm using After Effects 13.2.0.49 (2014.2), and I have 8gb of RAM.

       

      Why is this happening?

       

      Thanks in advance.
