    Simple question.. After effects video size way too big

    george3103

      Hey
      Im new to after effects so this is probally very easy and simple!
      Basically i made this video for Youtube using after effects cs4. Youtube only allows videos to be no more then 2gb in size.
      However, my video is like 5gb! Its only 3 minutes..!
      In after effects i pressed 'make movie' and it rendered. Its an 'avi.'. I dont know what that means :/. How can i make the video size below 2gb? It needs to be 3 minutes long, i want good quality audio, it doesn't matter if the video isn't good quality just aslong as the audio is! Also, it can be in black and white. please help! Can you tell me what to press because i dont really understand all the technical stuff
