Lesson 14. Command Line > Shake in the Command Line

Shake in the Command Line

Every function that you can perform in the interface can also be executed in a Terminal window, usually in what is known as a shell. The command line is perfect for when you know exactly (or almost exactly) what you want to do, and it's not very complicated. Its great benefit is speed. If you just want to take high-resolution images and make video-resolution copies with a change in color, typing that out may be easier than actually launching the interface and connecting all of the nodes.

Common Command-Line Uses

  • Resize, rotate, crop, or flip/flop images from scans

  • Add sharpening filters as you resize elements upwards

  • Change image file formats

  • Place the luminance of an image into its alpha channel

  • Load images into a flipbook for playback

  • Render scripts

  • Check a rendered, computer-generated element over a background plate

  • Renumber and rename files

  • Compare two images
