I'm trying to preview my video in after effects and I have tried numerous methods and can't seem to figure this out. All it ever does when i press space bar or the play button is play 1sec loop and the green loading bar doesn't load much. Everything worked fine until I tried to preview. I also went into edit and then preference and memory and made it so that after effects uses 7.9gb of my 8GB RAM.
My PC has:
8gb of RAM (questioning this)
asus motherboard crosshair v formula
Radeon hd 6770 vapor-x
AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor, 3311 Mhz, 3cores, 6 logical processors
not sure if anything else is needed.
It might be an issue with memory or Disk Cache
1. Reduce the allocation of memory to 6GB.
2. In Menu bar Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache > Click OK
3. In Preview panel > enable "Cache Before Playback" option & try Preview again.
and GET MORE MEMORY. 8 gigs is pretty darned weak for AE. Think 16 gigs.
