Apple Finally Discontinues Shake

According to MacRumors:

Alongside today’s introduction of updated Time Capsule models, Apple appears to have finally discontinued Shake, its long-standing high-end digital compositing and visual effects software package. While Shake’s product pages remain available on Apple’s site, it is no longer listed in the online Apple Store and MacRumors has received word that Apple sales representatives have been informed of the product’s discontinuation. Shake had been priced at $499.

Shake was originally launched in 1997 as a product of Nothing Real, which was acquired by Apple in early 2002. Apple continued to update Shake over the next several years, but the release of Shake 4.1 in mid-2006 was accompanied by the announcement that no further software updates were planned. A minor update to version 4.1.1 was issued in late 2008.

Apple Compressor: Compressor 3: A “virtual Cluster” Makes an Impressive Speed Boost

Chapter: Distribution

Topic: Encoding Techniques

A large number of us do our encode/transcode work in compressor on the same single machine as we did our FCP editing on, or are about to author our DVD on. The point being that many of us don’t have the luxury of raw extra computing power just sitting in a stack next to our desk waiting to become a Qmaster Cluster for distributed encoding. However, it turns out, there’s a great pro-tip for Compressor users that allows you to basically do distributed encoding to yourself.
