Hi tech Pro,

My system configuration is Windows 8 with 64-bit operating system and 500 GB hard disk. I have After Effects CS3 version in the system. I regularly update the system and antivirus. I get this error message whatever I try to do in After Effects. Do I need to reinstall the After Effects again? Please help me to fix this error without reinstallation. Your help is great.

After Effects: not enough memory to create shadow map

This error is related to cache size "After Effects" uses. It usually occurs when you have the temporary folder After Effects accesses in a non-default location. To fix this problem, do the following:

1. Start After Effects, go to "Edit", go to "Preferences", click "Media and cache drive".

2. Choose a different location for "Disk Cache" and "Conformed Disk Cache", preferably one that is not on an external or a solid state drive (SSD).

3. Restart your computer.

Alternatively, make sure that your Windows user's account has its "temp" folders in their default positions.
