    Do any of you use blender as post production software and have you used shake aswell if so can they be compared and which do you recommend.

    Isn't Blender mostly a 3D modeling and rendering tool? I know it has some "post-production" capabilities, but I'd be very surprised if it could match the abilities of Shake, which is a mature and dedicated compositing tool.

    Although Blender is very good (especially considering that it's free) and can actually handle most average compositing jobs, Shake definitely wins here.

    Isn't Blender free though compared to £2700 for Shake

    Blender is a 3d modeling tool... shake is post production.

    totally different beasts and hardly comparable.

    Yes, but Blender also has surprisingly advanced composting and as I said earlier can handle most average compositing jobs. This is why it is valid for some comparison.

    Shake wins here, but if your needs aren't all that great Blender's or FCE's/FCP's built-in compositing should do fine.

    I was thinking this was about Blender (from Futurama) vs. Shake (from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, see avatar). I think we know who would win.

    Aghhhh, I thought I was about to find a free alternative to Shake. If anyone knows of a free compositing tool...
