Apple's very popular compositing package is very quickly spreading throughout the Film Industry.


Appleinsider reports:

"Apple Computer will take the wraps off the latest version of its industry-standard compositing and effects solution for film and HD during the annual NAB conference next month, reliable sources told AppleInsider.

Shake 3.5, as the company plans to call it, will boast new Warper and Morpher nodes along with improvements to playback caching, shape drawing, QuickTime integration and more, sources said."

"Shakes Industry Dominance
For the past three years WETA Digital, New Zealand's foremost visual effects facility, has used Shake software as the primary film compositing system to handle the enormous visual effects requirements for New Line Cinema's and Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

This year's Annual Academy Awards presentation marked the seventh consecutive year Apple's Shake compositing software has played a crucial role in a film winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. The 2004 winners in this category from Weta Digital credited Shake as a key element in the creation of “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

Apple is expected to debut Shake 3.5 during its invite-only "Moving Pictures. Moving Sound. Moving the Industry" event on April 18th at the NAB conference. The application is said to be just one of several announcements to be made by the company during the expo."

For more details, maybe too many details into the new version. ;)
