    While i export aep file to mp4, through media encoder, file size was increased nearly like 1 GB, as aep file is just 500 KB only, what’s wrong in this, even i haven’t load any big media files in it.

    The .aep file is just your AE project file. At its more basic, it’s a database that keeps track of your assets, how you use them in a composition and the effects you layer on top of them, it’s generally going to be small. The mp4 is the output. Factors like composition size 1920×1080, frame rate, bit rate and complexity of each frame all contribute to the final size of the mp4.
