Lesson 14. The 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. 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 use high-resolution images to make video-resolution copies with a change in color, typing that out in the command line may be easier than actually launching the interface and connecting all the nodes.

Common Command-Line Uses

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

  • Add sharpening filters as you resize elements upward

  • 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
