Apple has shocked the compositing world, releasing an update to their generally presumed-for-dead nodal compositing app Shake.
Also included in Apple’s Pro Applications Update 2008-04, FCP updates to 6.0.5, Compressor to 3.0.5, and Color to 1.0.3. You can read all about it here.
Some more exciting aspects include XDCAM 422 and RED plug-in support in Color and improved high-precision rendering in FCP. Yay, RED footage grading!
For all you cautious early-adopters (and rightly so!), Charles Vanderpool on the FCP-L donned his guinea pig halloween costume. He reports:
Everything’s working fine so far. (Knock on Clone) FCP & STP good to go. No Color test yet. Too short a deadline to use it currently.
As always, I recommend waiting to upgrade until you have a business need and you are NOT in the middle of a current project.
