Chapter 3. Presets and Preferences > Specifying Memory & Cache Settings

Specifying Memory & Cache Settings

Settings on the Memory & Cache tab determine how much of your computer’s available RAM can be used by Final Cut Express, and how that assigned RAM will be apportioned.

Final Cut Express makes extensive use of your computer’s RAM to support real-time playback and preview. You don’t have to set hard memory allocations for applications running in OS X, but it is advisable to set an upper limit on the amount of RAM that FCE can use. If you like to keep multiple applications open while you edit, setting aside some RAM will minimize OS X’s use of virtual memory to accommodate the processor load, which helps maintain FCE’s performance.
