    Hello,

    new to motion, but noticed how much RAM it hogged, gobbled up all 8 gigs avail.

    i have dimms 3,4,7 and 8 open with the rest of the slots filled with 2GB.

    How much should I shoot for and whats the smart way to fill slots?

    Thanks!

    Wow...really depends on what you're doing in Motion (i.e. HD video with multiple layers). But I've done Motion with 4GBs of RAM and didn't notice much of a slow down.

    Of course, adding RAM won't hurt - just remember to install RAM evenly (ie. all the sticks be the same amount).
