Running MetaFuze (after some tweaks, see Extra comments)
What does not
Some video formats that worked in metafuze on windows failed to convert with an error about quicktime.
What was not tested
Didn't have files in all formats metafuze supports so was unable to test a lot of it's listed supported file types.
Simply running the installer and then trying to load metafuze will result in a crash. There are extra steps in the metafuze readme that must be run first. Oddly this doesn't seem provided with the installer but links such as http://cdn.avid.com/DSNitris/10.1.1/Avid_MetaFuze_ReadMe.pdf have the document. in brief from the readme the most important step is; cd to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Avid/Metafuze run wine cmd to open a wine command prompt then in it run RegisterMetaFuze.cmd which will register a bunch of dlls with wine. Metafuze will then run without crashing.
