My render files are filling up my mac laptop. Project with a total of 13 minutes on the timeline in 4K is a total of 650GB in render files. The original footage is 40GB and I added a couple of MOGRTS files from Envato Elements that cover 5% of the project.

I have tried to change my render and playback settings but it's unchangeable (photo below)

 

I have a 16" Macbook M1 max so GPU should not be an issue - 1TB - 32GB RAM (2021)

Project settings don't give any information in this case. Can you post a screenshot of your Sequence Settings from the "Sequence" menu instead? Also, do you need to render your timeline so much or can you get away with playing your timeline back at 1/4 or 1/8 resolution from the Program monitor?

Awesome thanks for the feedback David, Here is the screenshot of the Sequence settings. After you sent this I saw my video previews were set on animation, so I think that explains it. Can you see if anything else is set up wrong, and should I just choose Apple ProRes 422? Thanks again David for your help.

Yeah, animation render files are going to be massive. You can go with ProRes 422 or even a lighter variant like 422 LT for smaller files. Just be aware that you won't want to use either of these preview files in your final render if you'll be exporting to ProRes 422 HQ.
