    CS3 Optimize Rendering For Memory vs Performance

      Ok, the description of this option is pretty vague:
      "By default, Adobe Premiere Pro renders video using the maximum number of available processors, up to 16. However, some sequences, such as those containing high-resolution source video or still images, require large amounts of memory for the simultaneous rendering of multiple frames. These can force Adobe Premiere Pro to abort rendering and to give a Low Memory Warning alert. In these cases, you can maximize the available memory by changing the rendering optimization preference from Performance to Memory. Change this preference back to Performance when rendering no longer requires memory optimization."

      Now what I want to know is which will give you the fastest rendering times?
      Memory vs Performance. I have 4gb of memory and never have gotten the above error. But still, I would like to know which I should use.
