I'm beginning to cut a project in Premiere Pro CS5.5 and I plan on Color Correcting in After Effects. I'm running on an iMac with 4gb of Ram. I have 2.5gb of ram allocated to my Adobe programs. When I'm solely running Premiere it reads my h.264 footage perfectly in realtime. However, when I have After Effects open at the same time both programs lag. I would like to use the dynamic link between programs and have them running simultaneously. I cannot seem to allocate more than the 2.5gb for these programs, so when both are running I assume they are each only running on 1.25gb.
If I were to purchase more ram for my computer, would I be able to increase the amount of ram designated for my adobe software from 2.5gb to perhaps 5gb? Is there any other way to solve this issue?
Thanks in advance!
You really should be running a minimum of 12 or 16 GB of RAM using CS5.5. Any less and the programs won't perform their best.
