They'll be going up on vimeo. Currently using H264, but filesizes are not small. Cant use FLV for vimeo, was wondering for opinions are the best format for quick encoding and small filesize (quality not such an issue)
I reduced it to 960x540 and the bitrate a lot. Harm - are you saying reducing the size makes no difference to filesize?
Ann good to know will check out whats in the vimeo preset (although I suspect it'll be for the final cut)

Correct. The bit rate determines how much data is available to create the image in the frame. If it's a small frame size, the data goes a long way and the picture quality is good. If the frame size is big, then the data gets spread very thin and the picture quality is bad. So a higher bit rate = bigger file = better picture quality for larger frame sizes.
Regardless of frame size, only the bit rate and duration determine the size of the video file on disk.
