Andy, you're probably exporting at 5,000 Mbps, not Kbps. 1Mbps = 1000 Kbps.

Export a 45-min ProRes Lt movie from Final Cut Pro with "Export as QuickTime Movie". This is a huge file.

Bring that QuickTime into compressor, apply these settings and it will probably be about a gig and look great:

-H.264, 1280x720, current frame rate, 1000 KBPS

I would say test different compressions from 700kbps to 1500 Kbps and see what your sweet spot is for file size and quality. Anything around 1000 should look good and be under a gig. And definitely do the longer 2-pass compression.
