Shake is an image compositing package used in the post-production industry. Shake delivers visual effects and compositing for film, HD and commercials. It enables complex image processing sequences to be designed by the connection of effects nodes in a graphical workflow interface. Shake makes it simple to find, select and modify any element, in context, while previewing the final composite in real time.
In 2002, Apple Computer acquired Nothing Real, Shake's developer, hoping to leverage their hardware into production studios.
Shake is also used for video post-production, but in this field Discreet Logic's Inferno is more popular. Shake's historical strength has been the ability to work better with very high resolution formats such as 2k, 4k and IMAX.
In April 2005 Apple Computer announced Shake 4 at a pre NAB event. New features include 3D multi-plane compositing, 32-bit Keylight and Primatte keying, Optical Flow image processing (time-remapping), Final Cut Pro 5 integration and an open, extensible scripting language.
