There is something odd about C4D (R8.5 anyway). When I run C4D, TaskManager notes a memory usage of approx. 99MB which stays at about that amount for the rest of a session. That is, unless I minimize C4D (which drops to 2MB in this state) and restore it. Then, its memory usage drops to approx. 16MB.
At first, I thought it may be related to my plugin whose dialog is restored from the Layout, but these values did not change significantly if I saved the default Layout with my plugin dialog not running or by removing my plugin altogether.
What was that other ~83MB such that it could be removed only by minimize/restore?
Is this a symptom of Windows XP or Cinema4D?
I'm asking because my plugin requires vast wastelands of memory to be available for some of the more demanding processing and loaded objects. Currently in the process of greatly reducing as much memory usage as possible in my plugin and the resulting plugin tags/objects, but this other issue is not my doing. That is prime realestate!
