The First step is to do a Sequence Export that Matches the Sequence settings.

This will be your VIDEO file that you will combine with your surround sound mix.




Check your Sequence Settings >Sequence Settings

Set your sequence settings to this!!


Your frame size could be different depending on what you shot but it needs to match the Video Previews box.

ex:
