I am new to After Effects and have searched for answers online for my issue but I cannot seem to figure out why the cache is running up my Ram and making the playback horrible. My computer has 32 gbs of Ram in it and I am running GPU accerleration with my RTX 2060. For example just to test this I put in a clip that is 47 seconds long and the Ram is being 80% used if I added anything else it would easily go to 99%.
I also went ahead and even disabled caching in after effects started a new project and put the clip in and it still caches and runs up the RAM. I believe there is some kind of settings issue or this could be a bug I am not sure. If anyone could help thanks!
Turn off multiframe rendering and speculative caching. Also double- and triple-check your graphics driver and hardware acceleration settings. Unwanted memory consumption often comes down to leaky drivers and eventually AE might just crash.
