    Why is the new rendered file smaller in size ?

      Hi all experts,

       

      I am a bit baffled.

       

      You see, I did a 90 seconds effects in AE and the resulting file in mov rendered in 1920 x 1080 @ 25 fps yielded a file of 5 GB.

       

      Then I bring in this file into Final Cut to be part of my sequence with the same settings of 1920 x 1080 @ 25 fps. The whole duration (including the 90 seconds clip from AE) is about 7 mins. How come this time the file is only 1GB ?

       

      I mean why is the file which is 7 mins long incorporating a 90 secs clip of 5GB is only 1 GB in size ?

       

      Thanks
