What does not

Using fonts other than Verdana on Titles & Text Media Generator.

The Installer runs and completes, but does not actually extract files.


Winetricks used: corefonts d3dx10 d3dx11_42 d3dx11_43 d3dx9 directmusic directplay dotnet40 dsound msxml3 msxml6 quartz quicktime76 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2015

Windows Version: Windows 7 (Installing these winetricks verbs switches Windows version to XP which is not recommended for using Vegas Pro 13)

Override msxml3 set to Native then Builtin

Installed Vegas Pro 13 on a system running Windows then copied these folders to the Wine prefix:

C:\Program Files\Sony\Vegas Pro 13.0

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Shared Plug-Ins

Prefix needs to be configured to use Virtual Desktop in order to make the "Render As" window usable. (It's completely black otherwise.)

What was not tested


Third-Party VST Audio Effect Plug-Ins

Rendering as anything other than MP4, WMV, and AVI

Importing as anything other than MP4 and WMV.

CD Ripper

DVD/Blu-Ray Burning


Some others I haven't thought of

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

64-bit Wine is required.

Surprisingly, very usable! Turns out it's much more reliable than Vegas Pro 8.

May be a deal breaker if you prefer working with WMV and MP3 files.

Vegas Pro 13 running on Wine is prone to freezing. Save often!

Important to note: If you have Magix VEGAS Pro 14 or later installed on your Windows machine before installing Sony Vegas Pro 13, copy the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\VEGAS\Shared Plug-Ins to get audio effects. Vegas Pro 13 installer knows that there are already audio effects installed and will not install them under "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Shared Plug-Ins" if you have Magix Vegas Pro 14 or later already installed beforehand.
