    no ram preview afx cs5

      Hi all,

      i cant get my ram preview to playback most of the time.

      it says "rendering frame 1 of 100" and nothing happens.

      ocassionally after a long wait it does start loading into ram but most of the time it doesn't.


      I don't have a lot of ram for 64 bit afx so I guess this may be something to do with it, but its quite a simple project and set to quarter quality.

      just some photoshop layers with no layer styles. 1 layer is 3d and animated. large comp size, nearly 4000px wide


      system details

      intel i7 920 @ 2.67 ghz (dual quad i think)

      6gb ram

      win 7 professional


      I've ordered 3 x 4gb memory (mboard only has 3 slots and 8gb sticks are very expensive)

      I hope having 12gb will help.

      anybody got any tips for optimizing how afx cs5 uses ram?


      many thanks in advance
