Hi, I'm running Premiere Elements 8 on a Windows 7 machine with 8 GB of RAM. Elements usually runs fine when editing standard-definition video, but slows down badly with HD. But when I check the system processes, I see that Elements never uses more than 1 GB of RAM--even when it's really working hard. It's like there's some setting that is keeping it from using any more than that. How can I force Elements to take advantage of the rest of my available memory?
I think the problem is that PE9 is a 32bit app and will only see 3gig's ram but i could be wrong.
That would be right, Gavin. Premiere Elements is a 32-bit app and will only use, at most, about 2 gig of RAM.
