Hello ! I'm currently filming little music videoclips with a camera and editing the whole video with iMovie HD. I`ve been doing this for quite a long time now and now i really feel that iMovie HD is kinda limiting my creativity. I've noticed on Apple's site that Shake would be a cool software to insert special effects in my clips. Unfortunately each description points to Final Cut Pro, so my question is : Do I need Final Cut, or can I also use iMovie Projects ? I'm currently using a MacBook Core Duo 2Ghz / 2Ghz RAM. Will this configuration be enough to run correctly ( I mean ok the default config is on Apple's site, but we all know the configuration for video programmes should be a little bit better..) Shake ? Do I need to change my computer? What are your experience and would you recommend it for someone who has previously only worked with iMovie ? Won't it be too difficult ? Is Shake comparable to After Effects ? What would be the benefits of choosing Shake instead of After effects ? Thanks a lot for your answers !
