loadram

May 8, 2012 | 7:10 pm

I’ve been trying to use loadram and it seems to work fine for one film. read, load ram and what a while . . . and it plays. I’m trying to load 3, plenty of RAM compared to the film sizes, i.e. around 8 GB of films into 16 GB RAM.
But once I try more than one it freezes up.

Is there a modus operandi for this ? And some way of getting notification once a film loads ?

Thanks,

Jem

Jem,

The available RAM is limited to what a 32 bit system can do. Realistically, in Max, you probably will hit a wall somewhere around 3+ GB.

There are some workarounds using ramdisks, give a search on the forums for this.

Thanks Ben, that is good to know. I’ll try and make a patch for the weird bar problem.
