So my composition's length is 28 mins and 11 seconds with audio and some effects, I rendered with "best settings" and format as "QuickTime" and video codec as "h.264".
It took 1 hour and 15 mins to render, after that, what I saw is that my output file was .mov (shouldn't that be mp4? I don't know) and occupies ~12GB.
Is it normal to have such big file? I think it should be like 1 or 2 GB max.
Any suggestion on how to make it smaller and having a decent quality? My main purpose is to upload it on youtube.
