Hello everyone. I'm totally new to After impacts and also one point is staying clear of me from additionally trying out. The mp4 exports are too big. I also experimented through moving a box produced in AE, yet the file size gets over 100MB.

You are watching: Why are after effects files so big

I know I'm doing something wrong right here. Maybe the means I render the video or something?

Thanks for helping out peeps.

Length of animation, frame size & codec will certainly impact file size.

What codec are you using for the mp4? H264?

Frame size 1920 x 1080, 2k, 4k?

Length of animation?


Well there might be a reason. Idk precisely what without seeing it, but it can likewise be simply a weird fluke. I have run into it prior to where it was exporting means bigger than it need to have. Never before determined why but refounding it addressed it.

That aside though, it could be you have actually a huge composition means bigger than it demands to be. You deserve to inspect your composition settings (Composition>Complace Settings... or Ctrl+K)

Are you making use of Render Queue btw or Media Encoder. I recommend export in Media Encoder. It has actually even more options, and also maybe you didn't realize you were making use of a high res option in Render Queue?

Just some thoughts I can think of atm.

Are you exporting H.264? The file dimension will depfinish entirely on the bitrate you select and the size of your video.
