    So I did simple audio wave reaction to a 30 sec song in after effects and the avi file is 5gb! Anyone knows how to make it smaller for youtube?

    I use a free little software called MPEG Streamclip. Open the video, export as MPEG-4 and you're done. Good luck!

    Go into your render settings and change the format from AVI to H.264

    If you're using Adobe After Effects CS 6, it has the ability to render videos into H.264(.mp4 extension) if you're using CC use Media Encoder.. Worst case you just need to convert your avi video using video converting software.

    FLV also works well, an HD 30-second video only sums up at 10MB.

    I think you can get services of Window Movie Maker.
    It'll decrease the size of video according to your requirements easily.

    Render the video as H.264 or flv or mpeg4. Mostly flv will produce the smallest file size.
