Hello there guys,
I finally bought a new PC,
16GB ram
Intel® Core™ i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs),

I use AE Cs4 for my projects and I changed the settings and made it to multi-processing.
It says it uses 13GB of ram,but still,I don’t see any difference to the performace when I ram preview it or something.
What could be on mistake?

AE CS4 is 32 bit and it can see 4 GB RAM max… You need 64 Bit Processor and CS5 to see all 16 GB of RAM .

What do you mean “64 Bit Processor”?
And if I install CS5 ,then the buyer wont be able to use the project if he has CS4 - X_X

If you made project file in CS4 then CS5 can open it. But if you made it in CS5 then CS4 can’t open in.

Hmm… AE CS5 is build for 64 Bit processor only, you can’t install CS5 on a 32 Bit processor.

I am in Win7×64 bit with the Specs above,is it better to use CS5 than CS4 ? And if yes, It would really limit the version options that the user will have.

Well, that’s one million dollar question. CS4 reads some RAM , not sure exactly how much, but it certainly doesn’t read all 16gb. CS5 is 64bit and it reads all of your RAM , so it’s waaaaay faster. As for the customers, dunno. That’s my main question too.

It’s a big problem.. It takes much longer to make a project in CS4 ‘cos it’s so slow.

Everything is fine there, some RAM must be left for the system. AE limited memory usage to 13 gigs, that’s cool, windows and other software use those 3 gigs ;) You already have a 64bit CPU (i7) and Win x64. Real kick in speed comes in CS5 but just use CS4 for now.

You could also try to lower the amount of memory used by other apps. Go to Memory and Multiprocessing and drag the “RAM to leave for other applications” all the way to the left. The main slider there can either give you a longer preview or a faster render, try playing with it to see what works best. Word of warning tho: sometimes that option can cause your AE to crash :D

Yeah,I worked with a project that has fully 3D Texts,and it crushes in no times,and takes 10hrs+ to render…What do you insist?
Longer preview or a faster render?
