Portable Sony Vegas v6.0 (6MB) Project

Sony Vegas v6.0 combines real-time SD, DV, and HDV video editing with unrivaled audio tools to provide the ultimate all-in-one environment for creative professionals — high-definition and high-fidelity. With its unique, visual approach to digital video and audio production, Vegas delivers tremendous power, incredible speed, and maximum productivity in an uncomplicated, efficient platform.

Sony Vegas v6.0 also uses 156 megabytes of hard-drive space, but it only needs 6. Imagine the possibilities; editing video on the fly, like a fly. The NSIS-based launcher is still in development, but after a recent update from Ryan McCue on my Photoshop thread, I have the distinct feeling that both of these apps will be well running soon.

This time, to explain the process, I'm just going to tell you what you need to run Vegas.

  • Locate the directory that contains your Sony Vegas v6.0 files. For this example, I will use 'Program Files\Sony\Vegas\'. The following will provide you core functional use of Sony Vegas.
  • Program Files\Sony\Vegas\ ->
    vegas60.exe
    Interop.VegasCOM.dll
    sfcdi.dll
    sfcdx.dll
    sfs4rw.dll
    sfscsi.dll
    sfspti2.dll
    sfspti.dll
    Sony.Vegas.dll
    vegas60k.dll
    keyboard.ini
    

    UPXed, those will take up only 5.56 MB of hard-disk space. This is all you need to run Vegas, but to have a truly functional kick-butt file-supporting version running, you're going to want to include the 'FileIO Plug-Ins' directory.

  • Locate the directory that contains your Sony Vegas v6.0 files. For this example, I will use 'Program Files\Sony\Vegas\FileIO Plug-Ins\'. The following will extend use of Sony Vegas to include the importing/exporting of MANY filetypes.
  • Program Files\Sony\Vegas\FileIO Plug-Ins\ ->
    aifplug\aifplug.dll
    aviplug\aviplug.dll
    gifplug\gifplug.dll
    oggplug\oggplug.dll
    qt5plug\qt5plug.dll
    rm9plug\rm9plug.dll
    sctplug\sctplug.dll
    sflgaplg\sflgaplg.dll
    sfpaplug\sfpaplug.dll
    stl2plg\stl2plg.dll
    swfplug\swfplug.dll
    vduplug\vduplug.dll
    wavplug\wavplug.dll
    wmfplug3\wmfplug3.dll
    

    UPXed, those will take up only 10.7 MB of hard-disk space, totaling 16.3 MB of hard-disk space; not too shabby. The two most important ones to keep are 'aviplug.dll' and 'stlplg.dll'. 'aviplug.dll' allows you Import and Export: Video for Windows (*.avi). 'stl2plg.dll' allows you to import: Joint Picture Experts Group (*.jpg;*.jpe;*.jpeg), Photoshop (*.psd), Portable Network Graphic (*.png), TARGA (*.tga;*.targa), and Windows Bitmap (*.bmp;*.dib).

  • Copy the minimum required registry entry by running "regedit".
  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sony Media Software\Vegas\6.0\License]
    "key1"="(your serial registration number with dashes)"
    

    ISSUES: Vegas attempts to create and read from the following registry locations: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sony Media Software] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sony Media Software]. However, recent developments in portable application technology should provide a complete solution. Also, Vegas uses registered DLL files to call additional file support and video effect plugins, however the same solution just described would handle this as well.

    Hopefully this post is complete. Perhaps this will provide the means to a working NSIS-based solution. Cheers.

    Thanks!

    What do you need done in NSIS?
    BTW Lapwing is done in C++.

    Ryan!

    You've gotta get me onboard this Lapwing stuff, man!

    What needs to happen in NSIS is the same stuff that needs to happen with all the other apps, WITH the addition of The Lapwing Effect (oo, aa, The Lapwing Effect). Most everything configurable about Vegas is controlled through the registry, and unlike Photoshop, it doesn't need to make any file calls either. You can set most of your directories to local sub-folders through the registry too.

    Vegas also uses it's own windows service for the Media Manager, however, between all the Vegas users I know, none of us use it or find it helpful. Also, to let everybody know that I've done my homework on this as well, here are some of the other registry changes Vegas could use to run snazzier than the real thing.

    BTW, if you really think about it, what I'm doing is 0.1% as clever or skillful as what you guys do (especially now that I look at what Wrap can do). Regardless, I hope I'm contributing.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sony Media Software\Vegas\6.0\Metrics]
    ## Disable Media Manager ##
    "10000"=dword:00000193
    "10073"=dword:7784ac2e
    "10085"=dword:00000130
    "10474"=dword:00000001
    "10564"=dword:ffffffff
    "10828"=dword:00000000
    ## Frame Dock at the Top instead of bottom ##
    "10788"=dword:00000001
    ## JPEG Save Quality to 100% ##
    "10663"=dword:00000064
    ## Save Snapshot as PNG ##
    "10555"=dword:00000001
    ## Disable Splash Screen ##
    "10060"=dword:00000001
    ## Set 'FileIO Plug-Ins' Directory ##
    "S10605"="..\\Video Plug-Ins"

    Don't yell at me,

    yell at Steve!
    Try getting the current version of Lapwing, and trying it. While you're at it, check out my lovely icon!

    If the latest version is the one available on your site, then I did try it, and it didn't work, not yet, at least.

    I uhh.

    I meant THAT site. Yes, I tried it. I posted the bugs in the forum too. I'm a responsible little user.

    Just a few bug fixes and...

    Did you check? With just a few bug fixes I think I could finalize Portable Adobe Photoshop CS2 v9 and Portable Sony Vegas v6; then I could start on Portable Sony DVD-A, because that would be FUN. By then, other more advanced computer geeks will beat me to every punch. Wish there was some way I could help.

    Well,

    have a look at my post in the general section. If I can find a way to make it work it'll work better than you could ever imagine.

    Yours
