8k render settings Davinci Resolve studio 18 windows

Hello. I recently acquired a canon r5c (an irresistible black friday deal)

After recording some test 8k footage i was able to import and grade it without problem in davinci resolve studio 18 windows version. However when trying to export at h265 it simply crashes every time (my quick search makes me believe my laptop is a little underspecced.

So i read i should export in DNxHR and then convert in Handbreak to whatever i want. This works no problem but the issue is the DNxHR files are massive. For example a 30sec test clip came out at 24.7gb and takes a very long time to render and then another lengthy time to convert in handbreak. When choosing DNxHR there is another drop down with several different options. I cant find a good explanation of what the differences are between them all so does anyone know if any of them are smaller but still good or can anyone recommend a better intermediate codec to export to in resolve?
