Premiere Pro 2.0 eating my memory
When I'm editing HDV (1440x1080/50i) and load up about 40 files (total time about 15 min.) Premiere Pro 2.0 eats all my memory. The program itself does more than 1 GB and when I check the performance in Taskmanager my physical ram reaches almost to the top. After working for a few minutes Premiere says: no more ram, safe your work (or something like that). Importing all the clips causes the memory slurping.
Does anyone have a workaround or solution.
Btw. I have 2 GB of ram and I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate (my cpu is a 3,2 GHz P4).
Wow. My only suggestion would be to make sure you don't have large background programs on when you are editing. Other than that, Vista is a HEAVY RAM eating operating system. I would not be surprised if editing in XP SP2 yields better RAM results. If you can dual boot - you may want to give that a try. Good luck. Those specs should be plenty fine to do editing with.
What do you mean by 'background programs', other software running? I don't have any (significant) software running (not even anti-virus / firewall). I will post some screenshots of my Taskmanager (maybe tonight when I get home).

Again, my initial thoughts are that because they files are so memory intensive and large, coupled with the needs of Vista, you are having RAM problems. Can you render these files down before piecing them together and creating these large documents with multiple sources?
