When editing, I have noticed a large amount of system halts/freezes/crashes, usually just leading to me losing some work and having to "end process" it...
depends on the app, some are pretty resource hungry for RAM, some arent,for example one of the ones I use just takes awhile to load a file cause it indexes each frame beforehand, the other one I use does this on the fly so its pretty fast,neither uses much RAM at all really, if your using windows you need a decent amount of RAM for just running windows, I would think 512mb would be enough though
if your experiencing crashes and freezes youve got either a software problem(more than likely) or maybe driver issues, there;s lots of incredibly buggy software out there being sold to end users
