I increased my ram from 2GB to 4GB. Windows XP recognizes the increase but After Effects 7.0 still shows only 2GB of ram. Is there a setting in After Effects that needs to be changed to recognize the additional ram?
Search the forums (or any other tech website) for "boot.ini" and "/3GB switch". It's a system setting, not an AE thing. And, before you are disappointed: AE will not use more than 3GB on Windows XP 32bit, because it won't allow more. It will only use 4GB un XP 64 or Vista 64.
