Press the "Format" image on the right side to expand 500+ optimized presets. Head over to "Video" category and select "H265 for MP4", "H265 for MKV" or "VP9", which offers up to 50% better data compression at the same level of video quality than the predecessors H.264 and VP8.

Select a preferred output format, then you can move the slider along the "Quick setting" bar underneath the Format Profile section to downscale video resolution from 8K to 4K, 4K to 2K, 4K to 1080p or 1080p to 720p. Alternatively, you can also open "Parameter settings" window to change video resolution to make QuickTime videos smaller.

Note: You have to know that resolution doesn't determine the video quality. But a video with higher resolution generally has a better quality, because cameras always record video at a higher bit rate for the larger resolution.
