Need a .mov file, render settings

Need to convert my avi files from a shoot to .mov so they can be edited on an Apple. Files are 720x480 SD. Do I simply choose uncompressed .mov for my setting? So far it's halfway through and its already 64 GB in size. Yikes

Uncompressed will be huge just like uncompressed AVI files are huge. If the files are DV, you simply need to render to DV-MOV which should be the exact same size.

Edward, I can find nothing like DV-MOV in the render settings under quicktime templates.

Render As > QuickTime > Default Template

Frame rate: 29.97 (NTSC)
Field order: Lower field first (assuming interlaced)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 0.909
Video format: DV/DVCPRO - NTSC > Configure (***)
***Scan Mode: Interlaced (assuming interlaced!)
***Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Compressed depth: 24bpp color

and Audio of course will be 16bit Stereo 48kHz as usual.

(if i remember correctly, output file size is about 220 Megs per minute)

Rob, thanks for your response, but the file output is still extremely large.

I'm stuck holding this client's footage until I can come up with settings for this.

And you set the format to DV? That should have given you files roughly 13Gig/Hour - the same a DV-AVI files.

Yes, you missed something. The "Video Format" should be set to the appropriate DV setting. There are three to choose from: DV-PAL, DV/DVCPRO - NTSC, and DVCPRO - PAL.. Using those settings, you're getting "uncompressed" which is HUGE.
