Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhanced caching, part of After Effects CS5.5: New Creative Techniques.
RAM and disk caching is another area that got a major overhaul in After Effects CS5.5.…For the sake of demonstration, I've opened up project 23B from Creating Motion Graphics.…This is the effects roundup.…There is a lot of compositions.…I've gone ahead and RAM previewed a lot of them to fill up my memory.…Now you are probably familiar with the green bars for the RAM cache.…This is a composition that I've not RAM previewed yet.…I can tell that because there's no green bar along the top telling me that these…frames already exist in memory.…But if I press 0 on the numeric keypad to RAM preview, you'll see this green bar…fill out and indicate all those frames for this composite are now in memory and…I can quickly scrub the Current Time Indicator and it'll just recall those frames…from RAM rather then having to recalculate.…
Well, After Effect CS5 became as 64- bit application, which means that it can…access a lot more memory than before,…there are still occasions when you might run out of memory.…
