7.1 audio

I have a question regarding both Movie Studio and Pro version of the current Vegas.
I have the Movie Studio and downloaded the trial of Pro version to see if it is different from Movie Studio, but both of them had the same settings.

If I have video that has 7.1 audio, which is 8-channel, can I output it back to 7.1 after editing?
If I go to project properties there are options for stereo and 5.1 but no 7.1.
However, if I start to render the video, I can change the render settings to support up to 32-channels of audio.

So which one is the 'correct'? Doesn't the project properties need to match with the final outcome of the video instead of having different settings?

Re: 7.1 audio

To output 5.1 without encoding to Dolby (which costs extra), you need to do a WAV render with "Mono (multiple)". To encode that to TrueHD or DTS-HD, you must use an external program.

Unfortunately, Vegas only supports 5.1, so it's better to mix for 7.1 in Pro Tools or similar.

Re: 7.1 audio

I am still very new to the whole multichannel audio, except stereo of course.

You say that if I want to encode into Dolby, it would cost extra. What exactly do you mean by that?
Even though I have only purchased the Vegas Movie Studio, it still gives me the option to edit 5.1 audio. (?)
