Installation, editing movies
What does not
Preview, help from the menu, restoring not saved project.
What was not tested
Everything besides some basic movie editing and exporting.
Installation is a bit complicated, you must create a new .wine directory just for installing, and delete it later. The app doesn't start on this .wine dir anymore because of some broken registry entries. So here are all steps: ##### Installing ##### 1. Backup your current .wine dir and create a new one. 2. Run in the console "winetricks dotnet20" and "winetricks vcrun2005sp1". Installer needs also wmvcore.dll, you can get it by installing Windows MediaPlayer: "winetricks wmp10". 3. Now run Sony Vegas installer, but don't install it into default dir (inside .wine dir, which gets deleted later). Install it somewhere else, e.g. /home/progs/Sony/. 4. Run "regedit" in the console and export following key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Sony Creative Software" into a file. 5. Now you can delete the .wine directory and restore your original one. ##### Running ##### 1. Again install dotnet20 and vcrun2005sp1 (they are necessary to run the app). 2. To see some help: "winetricks ie6", to be able to export movies in .mov format run "winetricks quicktime72". 3. Run "regedit" and import your previously exported registry entries. (without this you don't see transitions and FX effects on the list). 4. Now you can finally run Sony Vegas. It shows some error message about windows terminal services, but it doesn't affect your normal work. Enjoy!
