After Effects low memory warning 24.1!

After Effects is constantly giving me the low memory warning, I have a Mac M1 with 64 gigs of RAM.  After Effects has always been a memory hog but this is ridiculous! I am using Particular, maybe this is contributing to the issue.  I clear the cache constantly, but still do not have memory cleared up for previewing. So, seeing the green lines to show, cached frames is not accurate, sometimes these do not show and do not update. 

 

I also get warnings at launch that my cashe does not have enough space, but there is enough space, I have 90 gigs of cash allocated and I have 150 gigs available on my hard drive. Why does this keep happening?

If you're able, download the AE 24.3 beta and see if that helps with the memory warnings you have been seeing. There are a series of memory fixes in 24.3 that should assist with this area. 

 

For the disk cache, check the path that is shown in Preferences -> Media & Disk Cache and see if there are other versions of AE also in that folder. Older versions of the disk cache are added to the calculation so that if you are using multiple versions of AE, AE isn't trying to use 90GB per version.

Thanks, will try the beta version, I have done the above and cleared the cache out manually many times.

Why is AE such a memory hog? I thought this Beta was supposed to help.

I get this all the time! (see image) I have cleared the cache, 90GB set for cache, I have 200GB of space on my hard drive. There is only 5Gb of cache being used,  why is After Effects so screwed up??

What happens if you temporarily run After Effects with all third-party effects disabled?
