Running AE on a brand new MacBook Pro M2 Max with 64gb of RAM and I cannot render my comps without the computer crashing with a out of memory warning.
This happens during renders but it has also happened while working on a timeline.
Tech support opened AE with a terminal console and I was able to see this message repeated constantly: <prefetch> <5> RequestPrefetchedFrame frame not in async list!
As this message keeps popping and popping in the console, memory usage keeps increasing without getting cleared. It happens while looking at a frame and not touching anything (while AE pre-renders frames, and it gets worse when rendering up to the point where RAM usage gets at 250% and computer crashes.
My comps are 4K, using Trapcode Particular and Trapcode Form.
Had two sessions with tech support where they tried every trick in the book to no avail.
For the moment, my only solution is to render very short parts and stay in front the whole time to clear the memory using Memory Clean 3 every 15 seconds or so. Otherwise AE will crash the computer even for a short render.
My deadline is creeping and I really need a solution.
