apple shake – not dead!


Apple has shocked the compositing world, releasing an update to their generally presumed-for-dead nodal compositing app Shake.

You can download the Shake 4.1.1 pdf here. If you’re new to Shake and / or nodal compositing, check out Andrew Shanks’ Shake tutorials at the Creative Cow.

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.

    interesting indeed.
    add that to the fact that Apple is looking to hire “Software Tester – Motion Graphics Focus”

    ok that may mean anything
    but at least Apple is not completely silent.

    MacWorld 09 might be interesting?

      Hey Philip, thanks for stopping by. I think a lot of us will have our internets streaming the MacWorld 09 keynote presentation. Looking forward to it.
