i run Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere CS5.5 as well as Autodesk Maya 2011.
I downloaded after effects a while ago and it has been having a lot of problems(crashes, never closes properly, can never playback ram previews in full time, no matter the resolution). However, Maya runs perfectly fine. I have always associated After Effects problems with the computer using so much ram, but Maya works fine.
I'm curious about why it's always using so much ram, and if it has anything to do with why after effects runs so slow. Please Help!
