Lesson 1. The Shake Workflow > The Shake Interface

The Shake Interface

The time has come. You've just installed the Shake software; now you get to see it in action. Before you start working with the various Shake processes, you should become familiar with the Shake interface.

1.
If you don't have a three-button mouse, go and buy one now.

NOTE

You must have a three-button mouse to operate Shake properly.

2.
Turn on your computer and monitor.

The login screen will appear in a moment.

3.
Type your name and password at the login prompt.

4.
Launch Shake by double-clicking on the Shake icon located in your Applications/Shake folder.

NOTE

You may want to create an alias of the Shake icon on your desktop.

After you launch Shake, you should see something that looks like this, but without the silly numbers:

By default, Shake has four main workspaces:

  1. The Viewer workspace, or Node View

  2. The Node workspace

  3. The Tool tabs

  4. The Parameters workspace

You can resize the four quadrants at any time by clicking and dragging on the horizontal or vertical dividing lines of any two areas.

Click on the dividing line between the Parameters workspace and the Tool tabs and drag left and right to change the layout of the Shake interface.
