i just got my new retina mpb and started working on a video project. i just did some quick testrenders, and i realized that the filesize is huge! im rendering 1280x720 QT H.264 with 90% quality. 16 sec total and the filesize is around 400mb!
i been doing a lot of exports and i cant understand why this is happening - what i can remember these setting above is quite universal and bullet proof.
"if i export h.264, mp4 with 2mbps / vimeo settings, i get bellow 5 mb."
what could be the issue in alternative 1, codec corruption?

I'm not having this issue on the retina mbp so it must be something else. I assume you are using the Render Queue and not exporting. When choosing the H.264 format I have access to the MainConcept controls.
My preference is to render a lossless, uncompressed version then compress using Adobe Media Encoder.
i just tried the settings you posted and it works great! i just want to know when choosing the main format as quicktime with h.264 compressing bellow, cause a massive file? i used this method before without any problems.
