Surround on tape?

Is there a way to export or print to tape and retain surround sound audio? If yes, how would this work?

No. Surround sound can be exported as AC-3 only. Exporting to tape is only stereo.

D-VHS was a tape format which allowed for Dolby Digital 5.1, but there's no way to export to it from Vegas. Not much point in it, anyway; it's pretty much a dead format.

You can, however, mix your sound so as to make it more optimal for Dolby Pro-Logic receivers to make it a better surround experience, but that's more art than science.

They start with an AC3, HDCAM, or other multi-channel format.

Sorry for digging up an old post, but for future reference, there is a way!
