Working with audio

is it best to record two seperate lavs to seperate channels, (i assume in mono) than combine them afterward in vegas in case you need to adjust either differently from the other? And if so do you just right click and click combine on the audio track to mix the two? I have only done that once but there was only a single mono track to combine, i am guessing it would just mix the two if there was a second track.

You can actually choose "Left Only" on the left channel and "Right Only" on the right channel. That will tell that single channel to go over both sides. Then you can mix via volume envelopes however you like.

If you pop a stereo track onto the timeline (left side with one mic and right side with the other), you can then run a "stereo split" script which will do all of that for you - copy the stereo track to a new track, set one of them left only, and set the other one right only.

I don't think you'll want to use the "Combine" option as it would simply combine both channels into a single track and you would no longer be able to adjust them individually.
