But what kind of stuff are you actually trying to render? Please provide some info about resolutions, CoDecs/ file formats etc..
Have you tried searching?
Im trying to render a composition thats 720 by 576 which has 3 layers. That file is embedded into another compostition with a CC Sphere, directional blur and motion blur applied. Thats it. IM rendering out using DV settings and as a qt movie using a DV pal compression.
Ive been through google and our conclusion so far is that we have to upgrade to vista rather than XP even though adobe products are not necessarily supported with vista but hopefully we can get more Ram and stop the crashes
Mmh, have you tried other CoDecs? The Apple DV CoDec is not particularly "safe", especially on Windows. There are some bugs in it which never got fixed.
"Buffer" issues is something completely different from codec rendering issues.
You are getting bufffer memory issues from that large composition that is the source of the CC Sphere, I bet. The Directional Blur is also a culprit as blur effects have to create a big buffer in order to calculate the blur.
Your "Google conclusion" is wrong; AE runs fine on Windows XP. Click on the first link after searching for
i "after effects" "image buffer"
...and you'll be taken to my blog post on how to get around this.
Turn off "Render multiple frames simultaneously" and lower the Memory Cache.
