I have a mpeg 4 file. ( 22mb ). I need to add two effects on it, Warp Stabilizer and Snow. After I render it, The file size goes to 1.2GB when I export to quicktime and the audio is out of sink. How can I fix the file size to not go from 22MB to 1.2 GB. The file is 1920X1088. I don't care about audio much as I can overlap it but what can I do to take care of the size and not increase exponentially without losing quality. The file duration is about 50 seconds.
That's about the right file size for digital intermediate for use in production. If you want to render a deliverable then drop your render in the Adobe Media Encoder and use one of the H.264 presets. While it is rendering PLEASE study up on rendering. You can't be any good at all at producing video if you don't understand rendering things like delivery and production formats.

Rick is right. This is vitally important, basic, knowledge.
The under-the-hood reason for your large file size is that AE's output has absolutely nothing to do with the videos you place in your composition. AE works with completely uncompressed frames. Thus, your render is going to be based on that.
