Try QT:Animation codec. Especially if it's all AI assets, it should compress pretty good. It's lossless, so you won't lose quality.
Yeah, I tried that one, but it still had a file size that was far from manageable. But, I did find the setting through the RENDER QUEUE. But thanks anyway.
For anyone who is looking for this information. Select WINDOW > Render Queue. (This will bring it up as an window where the timeline panel is.)
Drag your composition into the Render Queue
Under 'Output Options' (it may be called something else, not sure) Click the 'Format Options' Button. Under the drop down menu, select SORENSON 3 (from my understanding, this is one the best lossy compression codecs available).
Then go back to the render queue and press the render button, it may take a while, but it reduced my 17GB file down to 216MB with minimal loss.
You can also send your project to the Render Queue by choosing Make Movie.
Glad to hear you found a codec that worked. I agree with David that QT Animation would be a good choice - you can reduce the quality slightly to greatly reduce file size. Another good option is QT PhotoJPEG.
