Regardless whether you use AfterEffects or Motion or any other video effects application to produce your video, you still need to follow the basic rules of the road when encoding video for the Web. First step is format. MP4 or M4V are acceptable. Anything else is not (except maybe FLV – if you don’t want any mobile users to ever see it). Next, the audio must be encoded with AAC, 48Khz stereo. Finally, the data rate should be set at 1400 or lower if you expect mobile users to be able to stream it at a reasonable speed and without exceeding their data caps.
Once you have created such a file, simply drag it into your Freeway page from the Finder. Freeway will do all the rest.
If you are concerned about Firefox Mac users, then you must also encode your video in WebM or Ogg/Theora format. The free Miro Encoder app can do that for you very simply. Once you have such a file, click once on the video in your Freeway page (so its corner handles appear) and look through the Inspector for the “additional formats” section. Use the file pickers there to add the MP4 or Ogg video to your original M4V or MP4. Again, Freeway will write out all the code you need to make this work for every browser.

First I need to choose in Adobe a type of render, there are many options, like AIF 48Khz/ Alpha only/ F4V/ FLV/ Quictime/Photoshop and some more.
Besides the best Render type I don’t now exactly how to embed in Freeway
