Registax is free Image Processing Software. In particular it allows the loading and stacking of avi files to improve the signal to noise ratio of ones images. It claims to be runnable under wine in its documentation and it does install and load. In my hands so far it will not load AVI files which is crucial for it to work. I am trying to get it to do that. In addition the automatic bug reporting does not work under wine. (doesn't seem to be able to connect with internet?)

What works

Program loads and displays properly. It will load jpgs (several other options not tested).

What does not

It will not load avis. Stacking AVIs is one of the main uses of the program.


What was not tested

Several other loading formats. The menu items seem to work with jpgs (since they load) so presumably they would with avis if they would load.

Additional Comments

This is an important well used program in amateur astronomy. One of about 5 programs I need to run for me to completely leave windows behind.

HowTo / Notes


To display the avi's do:

1. download this file:

2. Do "regedit codec.reg"

3. Download the appropriate codec-installers like divX, xVid etc. and install them. Look in the file codec.reg, what specific codec-dll you need (for example for one particular avi i needed to copy divx.dll and dpl100.dll to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32)

 4. Now just run Registax and test

That's all i guess
