I have an iMac 3.4GH 16GB of ram. I don't understand why I should suddenly be getting this message. I am using Mavericks 10.9. I use after effects CC the latest version.

The After Effects CC (12.2) update fixes this.

Let us know how it works for you after you've installed the update.

We can only guess without information about your project. What happens if you re-boot or use an app like Free Memory?

This is an innocuous message that is just because After Effects is (mistakenly) doing a memory check that it doesn't need to be doing. We're releasing a bug-fix update this week that fixes this.

An update that sounds great news. Thank you. I have deleted files that started this happening and I seem to be over the problem for now. I am wondering if it was caused by mixing file formats. I was using a part of an MP4 clip when the rest of the project was in Apple Proress. I am now converting the file to Apple Proress to see if this is the case. I am sure though that the update will fix the problem. Thank you.

No, it has nothing to do with anything that you did. It is just a stupid bug that is unrelated to anything that matters.

Sorry but that's not true... I'm having the same exact issue with after effects 12.2... and I must force quit to exit that alert message... Every time I clickthe "ok" button it pops up again and again and again...

Ah, and cannot save my project...

There is a RAM leak in AE version 13. The Adobe team is aware of it and are working on a fix for the next update: warning “RAM Preview needs 2 or more frames” after scrubbing audio in After Effects CC 2014 (13.0)

In the meantime, either don't scrub audio in CC 2014, or save your project as CC (version 12) and work in that for all your timing stuff. You can then go back to CC 2014 for adding effects and such (or just stay with CC for your whole project if you're not using any of CC 2014's new features).

Thanks for the links @Szalam. I'll drop back to v12 as you suggest and keep an eye out for updates.

Best regards

Getting these error messages repeatedly. Forcing me to force quit the application. This is happening after the 3d tracker camera analyzes frames. I did a sample with a video clip that is about 300 frames and it loaded fine. I am getting this message when trying a file that has 46000 frames. I am running CC2015. Please give this issue some attention! It has been over a week with no word on this. I'm a new Adobe/CC customer and so far am not satisfied with a buggy product and no response from an official moderator.

I get this error message ALL THE TIME. I just got a brand new mac desktop, it has 32G of ram, the computer has a nothing on the 1TB harddrive except for after effects, photoshop and illustrator, plus this barebones animation I'm working on and it has popped up for me like 10 times just this morning.

I also get it at work where we have the expensive decked out mac pros and on my old desktop.

Hi Cecilia,

Apologies that you are hitting this issue. We hope that we will have fix in place here for the upcoming release, however. We could use some help though. If you have time, please file a bug here. We'd like to nail down any issues around this bug and your report would help us so much.

Thanks,
Kevin

And I ask:

You fixed a bug. Now, would you say the bug is back? I can't work more than 5 minutes on my projects.

I have a Mac Pro early 2014 with 32Gb Ram....

What's wrong with this?

Thanks

Started getting the same message today after upgrading to After Effects CC 2015. Trying to follow one of the MIR / GeoLayers tutorials. Also must Force Quit the app. Any updates from Adobe on this?
