A bit of ‘Shake’ nostalgia

May 10, 2009

This one’s purely for those interested in a bit of compositing nostalgia. I was cleaning out some files and came across a bunch of the original design sketches I did for how Shake should behave. So I figured I should scan them in. It’s fun to see how many things made it all the way from paper to product, and also interesting to see those things that didn’t. If you’ve never used Shake, this will be completely uninteresting. If you’re one of the old-timers you’ll probably remember how some of these things evolved and may want to check it out. Take a decade-long walk down memory lane here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ronbrinkmann/sets/72157617972885456/

    Oldtimer check in:
    How many still remember typing long commands into their xwsh terminals that began with the command ‘look’? Or, later, creating and editing shk scripts with vi because that fancy UI above was still just a sketch? Sigh. (I still have the alias ‘lk’ in my aliases list to launch shake, and have a script called lkseq to list sequences in a shake-friendly format for cut-n-paste.)
    Off to take some Geritol now.
