I understand that a bitrate is how a video file is processed for information per second and that it affects the quality of how a video looks (the higher the bitrate the better quality but larger file size). I know that H.264 is best for web as it keeps the rate down.. but I'm struggling to understand how you know what bitrate is adequate for which output?

I guess I'm asking, what is the best workflow for changing bitrates if needed after rendering from AE? So for example, if I render something out as a Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and I need a lower bitrate for something else, how would I go about converting it for a different output?

Use encoding presets in Adobe Media Encoder, which are designed to give the right output for each kind of deliverable.

Check this tutorial :

Also if you are going to encode or export to .h264, Always go for Media Encoder rather than doing it from AE. It gives you much better quality. Generally I for Web, there are YouTube and Vimeo Presets that do the trick without much manipulation in settings.
