Huge SnagIt file sizes

My biggest issue with SnagIt is the file size of the video captures.  I don't see any way to change the settings to reduce the size in the Mac version.  This week, a friend and I both recorded the same presentation.  My file size was 1.3 GB and his was 187 MB!  The only difference is he uses the Windows version of SnagIt and I use the Mac version.  Is there any way to reduce the capture size via resolution settings or something else?

Hi,

There is one setting that can make a 4x difference in file size which is to scale down retina recordings to 1x.

I do have that option selected.  So, I guess I'm stuck?

This is the worst part about Snagit. The file sizes are ridiculous and in most cases, unusable. I cannot see why there are no options!
