    Huge MP4 sized file causes for extreme rendering times... [HELP]


      Hey all,


      I have a template i use to render videos quite often and I'm trying to add one more effect regarding a few particles like effects that I looped into a comp.  I decided to render the composition out itself so I could just bring in that looped video (1/2 a GB) to the template as a MP4 instead of it being broken out in layers.  I thought this would help with the render time but it has not.  It turned a one hour render time for a 4 minute video into a 24 hours render for that same 4 minute video through just adding one effect.  Anyone have any suggestions for severely compressing or reducing video size without harming quality too much? 


      Thank you,
