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, or process, tree.

Notice that you can just drag the mouse; you don’t have to click tabs individually to open them up.

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

Note

If you placed your Shake Lessons folder on a separate volume, open the Volumes folder from the File Browser to navigate to the destination volume.

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

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

Browser Icons

At the top of the File Browser are seven icons, which are listed below.
