Sony's last release of Vegas Movie Studio Platinum. Version 13 brings 4k rendering and compatibility for touch screen computers.
Probably everything for basic Vegas tasks (Tested importing video and audio and basic editing such as trimming and stretching, and rendering video). The video preview works too which was a problem with older versions of Wine.
What does not
*The "Show Me How" feature. Vegas will either give you an error and close, or just crash without warning.
*The "Make Movie" (rendering) menu will be completely blank although if you click the lower area of the menu you will be taken to the traditional rendering menu. Clicking near the top will give you options to upload your project straight to YouTube.
What was not tested
*Rendering audio only
*Rendering in HD or 4K
*Importing older .vf projects
(Special thanks to GnomeDroid for the help) (On a Windows PC or VM) *Download the Vegas installer linked here and install it as normal. *After installation DON'T RUN VEGAS. Instead, copy the Sony folder from "C:/Program Files (x86)/Sony" over to your Linux PC. The Sony folder will go in "home/(username)/.wine/Program Files" AFTER you've set up everything else below. (On Linux) *Move or delete your current .wine folder and have Winetricks installed. *Type in the terminal "WINEARCH=win32 winecfg", then close the Wine configuration menu. *Then type in the terminal "winetricks dotnet45", this will install all versions of .NET and the other programs needed for .NET to run properly. *After thats all installed, type "winetricks mfc42 vcrun2008 msxml6 directx9 gdiplus quartz" and install all of those programs. *Then type "wineboot -r" to restart Wine. *Then type "winecfg" and set Windows Version to Windows 10. *Run MovieStudioPlatinum130.exe from the Movie Studio Platinum folder and register as normal. *Vegas should start up normally as it would on Windows! Happy editing!
