After Effects CS4, installation instructions (Wine 1.7.36 and newer)
by Fincer on Friday February 27th 2015, 3:42
Just FYI. Adobe After Effects CS4 should be installable pretty much with the same instructions as is Adobe Premiere Pro CS3:

1) Patch & compile Wine with MSI dummy actions patch + kernel threadpool patch (see Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 AppDB page for details)
2) winetricks msxml3 msxml6 wininet vcrun2005 vcrun6 gdiplus atmlib quicktime72
(cocec support? winetricks amstream quartz ffdshow and codec tricks should do the job as for Adobe Premiere CS3. This need additional testing, though)
3) Install After Effects CS4
4) Set Direct Draw Renrerer to gdi and windows mode to Win7. Use native dll overrides for msvcr80 and msvcp80 in winecfg

Only trial version tested.

The only real issue I've had is that there is no sound, no matter what I do. If someone has figured out a solution, it would be very kindful to share it with the community!

Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 AppDB page:

If you follow these installation instructions, you can forget all the long-way instructions I've written for After Effects CS3 (i.e. "Copy all stuff from Windows").
