Go back to the previous version you were using. Blow off using CC 2017.
The most charitable thing you can say about CC 2017 is that it's a work in progress. By using it, you basically become an unwitting member of the Adobe Unpaid Beta Tester Program.
Are you still experiencing this issue? Have you filed a bug yet?

I got a "Keylight out of Memory" today. I'm working with 2K ProRes 4:4:4 footage.
I'm on an 8 core Mac Pro 5,1 with 64 GB RAM and my GPU is a TITAN X with 12 GB VRAM.
Using CC 2017 with OS X 10.12.3
How can this be fixed? I am having the same problem.
Hi Katia A,
Are you having this issue on all footage in all projects? If not, what is the specs of your system and media?
I did file that bug with Adobe like four months ago...but heard no response.
Actually, the plot thickens: So, I have been running After Effects CC 2017 on my laptop which is:
MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)
Processor : 2.6 Ghz Intel Core i7
Memory: 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB
Footage is 1920 x 1080p 29.97 frames h.264
Now, for the last four months I have been working on the same project and I have been dealing with the 'Keylight Out of Memory' error message. I just accepted it and moved on thinking that I just need a better computer (and this machine is fast as hell and has performed beautifully).
WELL...I just bought a new 5K iMac desktop computer, completely maxed out:
iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
4GHz Intel Core i7
AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4GB
This machine is a beast! I went to resume work on the same project I've been working on for 4 months...BOOM!
'After Effects Error: Keylight out of Memory.' I hit okay. Resume work. BOOM! Error message again.
This has got to be a bug, because I'm pretty sure my computer can handle a green screen key on h.264 footage.
Has there been any progress on this? I keep getting the error too. Thanks!

Can you try some footage that is not H.264, like some intermediate codecs?
I wouldn't say you have very much RAM. What kind of footage are you working with?
I'm having the same issue using AfterEffects CC 2017.2 release, v220.127.116.11 on both a PC and Mac.
After Effects error: Keylight out of memory. (4) ( 25 :: 241 )
- Windows 10 64 bit
- Intel Core i7-7500U CPU @ 2.7GHz (2 cores/4 logical processors)
- 16GB RAM and 750GB of free disk space
17" Apple MacBook Pro (late 2011)
- Mac OS X 10.11.2
- 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
- 8GB RAM and 70GB free disk space.
The project is very small, a video from a Panasonic HD camera in MTS format, a virtual set in PNG, and a spotlight to add a little color to the subject on the green screen.
Any advice? I have a project that the client needs for an event midweek!
trim just the parts you need to key out, and render the file in a lossless format. if it's 8-bit footage, QT Animation will do fine. import and try again with this file.
I have the same issue, somebody solved?

I also try to use the AE Dynamic Link into Premiere, which was always great before. Now it's a big pile of poo. As is everything about AE and Premiere.
Bumping this. It's been a year... and a new major software update... No improvement. I'm having exactly the same issue.

I'm working on layering two keyed tracks of 4K footage from a Canon C300 mkII.
Like the original post... basically everything works. Except this incessant error message pops up constantly. Neither my system RAM or GPU memory is anywhere near maximum resource usage.
Same issue here.
