Shake 4.1 Targeted for MayNew release gets Universal Binary port
Very little is known about the new version so far, but Apple says the new release will be a Universal Binary port, allowing it to run natively on Apple's Intel-based hardware. The company also says that the new version, running on a high-end MacBook Pro, offers performance to rival G5 Quad systems in some ways--including the ability to handle 2k compositing on a laptop system.
"[It has] absolutely stunning performance, so much so that we're actually showing 2k compositing on a MacBook Pro [on the NAB show floor]," said Kirk Paulsen, senior director, professional applications marketing for Apple.
Apple told DMN that it's targeting the release of Shake 4.1 for some time in May. Shake is the last of Apple's pro apps to receive a Universal Binary port. The most recent software to be converted to a Universal Binary was Aperture 1.1, which also received a number of improvements. Shake, however, is a straight port and does not incorporate new features beyond native compatibility with Intel hardware. We'll bring you updated information when it becomes available.
