Umm, guess why it's called RAM preview?! On Vista, only 3.5 GB will effectively be released to the application, which sums up to about 20 seconds of NTSC previewed at full resolution - that is under ideal circumstances and you are not using memory hungry effects, large images, sound and tons of pre-compositions. Sorry friend, even in this day and age simple computational math stops us from having the world of "Star Trek". In order to get longer previews, you will have to lower the comp preview resolution to Half or Quarter even. Other than that, rendering the movie is the only to preview it fully.
Yeah I understood the 'RAM' aspect of it, but with 8GB in the tower and a composition made from 3 simple vector images getting 3/4 seconds of rendered timeline is just a joke. I didn't realise there was a 3.5GB cap or anything.
Ah well, will have to do everything the hard way.
The 3.5 GB limit is because of the OS not because of Adobe.
If Adobe would release a 64 bit version of AE, then we would only have to ***** at Apple to make a 64bit version of QT..... Hopefully one day....
