After Effects 8 Only Recognizing 4GB of 8GB ram. Tags: Multimedia RAM Splash Screen Windows XP Apps Last response: April 21, 2008 3:07 PM in Apps General Discussion Share JimGoose April 21, 2008 2:51:05 PM Hi, I recently built an 8 GB ram core 2 quad system and installed XP-64bit. In system properties it shows that the OS recognizes my 8GB ram but for some reason After Effects will only recognize 4GB. The AE 8 splash screen that shows up during load and says "2% of 4GB total used" and also the memory & cache settings shows only 4GB. What am I missing?

I wonder if that cap gets any higher with vista? edit: apparently an add on program called Nucleo Pro 2 allows AE to utilize more than 4GB of ram on XP64 and other OS'. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
