one of the first things forum users will need you to post is your computer specs
how much actual RAM do you have installed regardless of the swap file
i use a pc with 24gb 1600MHZ ram and when i export through media encoder
PPROHEADLESS will use a lot of ram...
hope this helps,
please post your specs and the export settings you're using
you'll save yourself time and headaches and get a good answer sooner,
The OT mentions 32GB RAM (It's an early 2008 Mac Pro). Rendering mostly RED .R3D footage to the YouTube widescreen SD preset. No effects.
The RED importer plug-in in CS5 is very ill-behaved with regard to memory usage, and it doesn't respect the limit on memory usage set in the Premiere Pro application.
Try the same thing without the RED footage as a test.
Yeah, AME has been fine usually. And I've processed RED footage before with it. Just today it's gone out of control in regards to memory.
Is CS5.5 more well behaved?
I am busy transcoding in Encore (3 time Lines +- 75min each) it is using 23 gig of my 24 gig ram and it is set to only use 20 Gig. when I started it was going quick until the ram hit +-18 gig then it started going slower and slower. It has been going now for 4 hours.
980X OC to 4.1
24 Gig Corsair Gt Dominator Ram at 1600
600 gig Veloci Rapter OS (windows 7 64 bit ultimate)
4 x 1tb Samsung raid 0 Media
3 x 1tb Samsung raid 0 Render and output
both of the above run off a Intel raid controller (RS2BL080)
Black Magic Ultrastudio Pro USB 3
Production Premium CS5 and CS5.5
If I open windows task manager it shows that Pr is using 21 473 440K and Encore is using 446 644K of memory. the funny thing is if I close Pr then En hangs and shuts down and if I start En by it's self and try and import the Pr sequences it says something about not been able read the format. Do you think this could have something to do with the blackmagic settings?
