Shake

Shake

Shake is a high-end compositing system used to create visual effects for award-winning broadcast commercials and box-office–champion feature films like The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix. Shake is typically used for combining elements from multiple sources into a single image, creating the illusion that everything was filmed “in camera.” These elements include 3D animation, particles, procedural painting, and live-action plates.

Unlike the timeline-based compositing in Final Cut Pro, Shake uses a node-based architecture. Each operator is a discrete unit that can be plugged into other operators in an incredibly flexible, nonlinear fashion, creating a detailed process tree that leads to the final composited shot. Shake also includes two industry-standard keyers for greenscreen and bluescreen work—Photron's Primatte and Framestore/CFC's Keylight—along with numerous precise color correction tools.
