Anybody know how to make the movies not take all of my harddisc?
I made a 1:20 minute film, and it took 5 gigs!!!

Is the file you're referring to 1 hour 20 or 1 minute 20? If it's 1 minute, then that is way too big. Give more info on what program you were using and what render settings you had.

I'm sorry, I'm using EffectsLab Lite and the file was 1 minute and 20 seconds. Just some neon and muzleflashes are used...

If you are exporting it uncompressed then it could well be quite massive.
You can import it back into your editing program and then save out as DV, MPEG2 for DVD or an MPEG4 based codec when you've finished to save space. You need to do this right at the end though.
Don't forget to encode your audio as well.
