I have a Macbook 2007 with After Effects CS5. Apart from being slow, After effects keeps giving me this error when I export that the "Output Module Failed" What does this mean and how can I fix it? Also when ever I export, the files are huge like 15gb sometimes for a 4 min video. How can I lower that? If I import to iMovie and export, the same video is only like 500mb when the quality is decreased by a little.

Thank you so much!!!!

For your large file issue see here: [link]

As for your render failing, we're going to need more info. What OS are you using? What are your computer's specs? Have you updated your CS5? What sort of footage/images/sounds are in your project? What format AND codec are they in?

You've started out, but didn't finish. More info please. Everything I asked had a reason for me asking it.
My guess, and it is just a guess without more info, is that you've got some large assets in your comp which is causing it issues due to your extremely low system specs.
