The rendered footage is uncompressed for highest quality.

Uncompressed footage takes up that much space.

Indeed, uncompressed footage is big. Try rendering to another codec for smaller files.

Render to a DV format for smaller files. Rendering and render settings are covered in the manual.

Standard procedure is that when footage is rendered out from Elab, you will add those scenes back into the project in your editor. You need high-quality files throughout the editing process, so you deal with large files sizes. Once you have completed editing the final scenes into the project in your Editing application, and have rendered out a final version, that is the time to compress the file size into something more manageable.

And that is whey you can't render tiny file sizes straight out of Elab.
