    Premiere Pro CS5  Installed RAM

    Jorge Rivero

      Hi, I have 12 GB of Ram installed and when I open the preferences in Premiere, it says that I have 8 GB, ----------- RAM available for Premiere 5 GB and RAM reserved for other applications 3 GB. if someone can help me with this I'll really appreciate.


      After Effects reads all 12 GB.


      Thanks in advance.

          It's likely that someone may come along and tell you to uninstall CS5 and reinstall. You could also try the following:


          Close all CS5 apps and reboot. Rename the memorybalancercs5.xml file located at:

          Mac: /Users/username/Library/Preferences/Adobe/dynamiclinkmanager

          Win 7 x64: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\dynamiclinkmanager\2.0  (may be hidden)

          Start PPro and set the preferences.

          The file that you renamed will be recreated. If you encounter any problems, just rename the old file back to its original name.


          I doubt that this "fix" will work, but it's worth a shot. The dynamic link manager controls how Adobe CS5 programs allocate and share RAM. Something must have gone awry during your install, as it makes no sense to me why PPro & AE would show different amounts of total RAM available.

              You should be able to set Premiere Pro CS5 to reserve only 3GB for other programs; that is the minimum allowed for some reason.


              To adjust:

              From menu: edit/preferences/memory

              Use your mouse to "slide" "RAM reserrved for other applications" setting to 3GB (slide all the way to the left)
