- Optimize Stills
Try with that off. It can sometimes cause this problem when used for anything but Encore.
Thanks for the reply. I tried with that Optimize Stills option off and the file was still over 20MB.
I found a workaround which is to export as another format such as F4v (11MB) and then I used HandBrake to re-encode it as mp4 (5.6MB).
Obviously it would be nice if I didnt have to do that step though so hopefully we can track down the problem.

That suggestion was to fix the sync, not the file size.
Oops sorry the sync is off too after unchecking Optimize Stills. I also unchecked the other options such as render at max bit depth and frame reordering.
Try not using Quicktime. (I'd even recommend fully uninstalling it from your system.)
Its a requirement by a client so i need to use it.
Does the Quicktime installed on the OS have anything to do with the encoding of the movie?
Quicktime has caused issues for others. Not having it installed eliminates even that possibility. Too bad about the requirement, though.
