Lesson 1. The Shake Workflow > Importing Images and Sequences

Importing Images and Sequences

Reading in an Image with the Browser

1.
Drag the left mouse button along the Tool tabs (Image, Color, Filter, and so on) to see all of the function nodes you can insert into a compositing tree.

Notice how you can just drag the mouse; you don't have to click on each tab to open it up.

2.
To read in an image, you use the FileIn node in the Image tab. Click on it, and it will launch the file browser.

The browser is used whenever you are loading or saving images or reading and writing scripts.

For this node, you will load the fairy clip, which is located inside the Lesson01 folder.

Browser Icons

There are six icons located at the top of the file browser. They are listed below for your reference.
