Does anyone use Blender as a Shake alternative? I posted a thread a few months back about Shake and was literally just about to pull the trigger and buy it when I heard that Apple were working on a new Shake like application. Although Shake is one of the best apps available and certainly one of the best for the price I am keen to avoid spending money on an application which is going to be discontinued at some point in the near future. Especially when I have little to no experience with compositing in general. So I am planning on using Blender until I see what Apple manage to do with the new product that is rumoured to be in development. The question is how well does Blender work at this role? I assume the best way to get your footage out of Final Cut Studio and into Blender would be a reference movie (I forget what is called now - away from my home computer)? Any info from someone who has used Blender like this would be appreciated.
