Use RAM more efficiently
Especially since AE 17.5, it has become even more RAM greedy. It doesn't matter if I have 32GB, 64GB or 128GB, once I start a multithreaded render, the memory will always be the bottleneck. There surely must be a way to use memory more efficiently, I can't understand what AE needs all this memory for. Just doesn't make sense to me.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

I don't think... they CAN change it. at this point it seems built into the program. we just need a new program that's not 30 years old. it was never designed for modern computers or hardware.
my newest post here includes some others who you can comment on to make these topics more popular. let's show adobe how to run a real popularity contest, if that means getting actual improvements.
