Apple Pro Training Series: Shake 3

Book Description

"Talk about making an impact: Apple’s Shake compositing and visual effects software has been used in every Academy Award-winning film for visual effects since its debut. It’s no wonder then that trained Shake artists are in high demand -- and there’s nowhere better to begin getting that training than with this comprehensive Apple-approved guide (which includes a free 30-day trial version of the $4,000-plus software)."

Its pretty good, if a bit basic. It would be an excellent intro to shake for beginners.

Agreed, it was a good book...its just a shame theres not more books on the market.

yes, a really good book. good descriptions. perhaps a little bit more script introducing. becouse it seams that shake has an interesting core behind the GUI. :eek:

I also think it is quite a good book, although i did find it is the kind of book where you have to do everything in the order he gives it to you. It is not much of a reference, more like a straight tutorial. But when combined with the built in references and shake tutorials its great. Oh and the one month license it gives you is invaluable.
