I am using After Effects CC 2014 with following specs

16 GB DDR3 Ram @1666
AMD Fx 8350 @4.0 Ghz
AMD Raedon R9 270x 2GB DDR5
Asus Sabertooth Motherboard

But problem is when I am rendering something even in 720x405 Res, the memory in use is contantly increasing up to 16 GB then crashing the app.

What could possibly cause this ?

Probably a software bug. Sometimes referred to as a "memory leak". What happens is the application uses memory, no longer needs that memory, but fails to release the memory. Then needs more memory, takes more memory, and again fails to release the memory. Repeats until memory is all filled and unavailable.

May not be the application you are working with either. Could be a combination of programs.

One thing you can do is go into "perfmon /res" via Windows Key + R. Press Windows Key and the "R" key together. In the "Open" box type "perfmon /res" (without the quotes). When the performance monitor opens select the Memory tab and see how much memory the various applications etc. are using. Keep working as normal and see if you can determine which program is grabbing the memory.

May take a bit of time to get a sense of it all. However, once you do, you may see the problem program. Then check the manufacturer's website for a fix.

Feel free to post as necessary if you have questions or updates. Thanks.
