    Installing MetaFuze on Linux

    Hi all

    Yes another Linux question...

    The Avid MetaFuze page sais it's possible to install MetaFuze on Linux.

    I'm running Fedora 9 32bit on a bunch of render farm machines and thought of utilizing this for Avid encoding.

    I executed the MetaFuze installer and wine (1.0.1) finished the installation succefully. When I try to launch MetaFuze I get the following error:

    metaproject::initialize() failed, aborting...


    Anyone has any ideas what can cause this? Is anyone using Metafuze on a render farm like this?

    Im running Metafuze through the latest version of Wine on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Works like a dream!

    But, after installing, to run the program, you have to go into the App menu >> Wine >> Browse C: Drive and then go to the Metafuze installation directory, locate the MetafuzeApp.exe file and run it by right-clicking and selecting run with Wine windows program loader or whatever it says. Creating a shortcut on the desktop and double clicking gives an error for some odd reason.

    I'm using it to transcode DPX files into an 1080p HD MXF and have found that it transcodes a lot faster on Ubuntu than on Windows.


    Good luck.
