GoalsUse command-line Shake in the Terminal window
 Load single images and sequences into a flipbook
 Compare images
 Convert files
 Get help
 Get image information
 Execute command-line compositing


This lesson shows you how to use Shake in the OS X Terminal program to launch flipbooks, perform file conversions, launch scripts, and generally execute any string of commands that are also available in the interface. I highly encourage you to learn the command-line syntax, because it often provides a much easier way to do certain tasks than firing up the interface.
