Application Memory Use and Settings
This application is 64 bit and can use all available memory on the system.
Application memory usage is controlled using the following preference setting in the base file :
ROOT / Users / AllUsers / general.prefs
|memoryPool / MaxMB||3/4 RAM (capped at 48GB)|
New installations will set application memory use at 3/4 RAM by default but cap this at 48 GB.
It is recommended you use the default setting of 3/4 RAM (to a maximum of 48GB) but if required you can change this through editing the general.prefs settings file or in the GUI Preferences / Rendering : Image memory
Systems with under 24 GB of RAM use a slightly different calculation of application memory to use.
