  • Vegas 20: Rendering ProRes w/ 5.1 surround sound

    Posted by Julia Morizawa on March 30, 2023 at 11:27 pm

    Hi! I need to render my short film as an Apple ProRes 422 HQ file, 1920×1080, 29.97. The film’s audio is in 5.1 surround sound. But none of the Apple ProRes render options allow me to change the audio settings from stereo to 5.1. What do I do? Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately I don’t think there is a way to render ProRes with 5.1 surround in Vegas Pro, at least not natively as I couldn’t find such options either.

    What you could do instead is render your project in ProRes stereo, separately render your audio in 5.1 and then combine the two in some other software that would support it. If your project is simple enough, you could try using one of the File -> Export options and skip the extra renders.

    Otherwise I’d look into whether it absolutely must be delivered in Apple ProRes as other formats do support 5.1 renders.
