I am a new user of AE CS5. I am attempting to output a Quicktime file. I'm taking online tutorials via lynda.com and set my output parameters accordingly. My problem is the output is only 20K in size and completely blank (black). Any ideas?

Sorry, I have no clue. There are no details from with to make a diagnosis. If you can elaborate on what you're doing, we might be able to help.

I got this working. I noticed the Start and End time codes in "Render Settings" in the output queue was set to 0;00;00;00. I changed the End time code to the length of the composition and it worked. I got the expected output movie file. It's odd AE doesn't default to do this automatically. Why would anyone want to output a file of zero length? Makes no sense.

It sounds like you had the timeline's Work Area set incorrectly:
