Sorry, but your post does not make any sense at all if you don't provide exact system info and details about your project(s), preview settings, hardware acceleration and so on. Just saying that memory consumption is high is of no use to anyone.

Hi milan244595190o9i,

 

Sorry for your issue.

I agree with Mylenium. We'd need more details so that we can troubleshoot the issue properly.

We're here to help, just need more info.

 

Thanks,

AE is a memory hog. 16 gigs is minimum, 32 is reccommended for entry level effects, 64 for some heavy editing here or there, and the sky's the limit, because it just works by storing rendered frames in RAM, so it's pretty much just a linear growth. double the RAM, double the frames rendered. almost. I do 4k footage and I can get maybe 10 consecutive seconds of playback with 32 gigs of RAM if I'm lucky. 

you're going to max out your RAM unless the entire program's variable storage AND the viewport cache fit neatly into a portion of it, which for you I would say is about a 20-30 second 1080p video.

https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/memory-consumption/m-p/12912399#M199354 is someone else who's suffering the same thing. it's a common worry with the program.

also, note that switching viewport resolution will store both resolutions separately until some needs to be overwritten in the working resolution. This means it will seem even worse for someone wh's trying to optimize their Ram and playback a lot.
