    problem when making a short "movie"

    mdermez Level 1

      Hello everyone. It's just the second time I am using after effects. I wanted to make a video for youtube.  So I used my phone camera and recorded 2 pieces of video 1.5 minutes and 200mb each. I made a new composition in after effects, added the videos and a few subtitles and then I made the movie. The problem is the extremely large size of the file. Almost 20 Gb for just 3 minutes of video. And even if I reduce the quality in half then I get the same size and the subtitles (the added text) look pixelated. So what the hell am I doing wrong? Thank you guys in advance.
