One item that I think would be very helpful in speeding up the program would be to have the ability to set the memory amount. I use AE for years and one thing that has helped, especially on heavy use of filters and plug-ins. I did see this in the options but it sets the amount itself. I have a great deal of ram but in spite of that I also use a Sata drive for speeding the program up.
Do you think in the future you will be allowing the user to set the base for the virtual ram usage?
