I just did a quick test of Shake 4.1 on a 2011 15" 2.0GHz MBP,
using the defocus filter. Seemed to render 3 times faster than
my 2.4GHz C2D iMac.

maxthread = 8, which seems really cool, except that

Any other experiences out there?

    Are you running SHAKE for arch i386 or x86_64?

    I have a SDK package for another app. the .dylib in the SDK are built for arch=x86_64.

    So, I am thinking about to change the arch of my system from i386 to x86_64. otherwise, even if I can built the plugins/apps, I cannot run them.

    I need to make sure the aged SHAKE 4.1 can work for arch=x86_64. all other apps in my system, MAYA2011, Photoshop cs5, AFE cs5, ..., have no problem to run for x86_64.

    Thanks in advance!

    if you type 'arch' in a terminal, do you get i386 or x86_64?

    I boot the 64-bit kernel and extensions. but, typing 'arch', I still got i386. SHAKE has no problem to run in arch=i386, 32b/64b universal env. however, I am not sure it would still work for arch=x86_64.

    when I build SHAKE plugins, the SHAKE SDK manual tells us to configure the architectue to (ppc i386), no x86_64 mentioned.

    Thanks!

    I am not sure if 8GB will or will not affect Shake's "performance", I have never really pay attention on this. At least SHAKE works on my i7, 8GB mem, 1TB hd, ATI 4850 system.

    Hi, seems like you've migrated your Shake to a new MBP. I just bought a 2011 17" model, and want to de-/reinstall my Shake 4.1 from my "old" early 2008. I've searched through tons of information, to no avail. How on earth is it possible to deinstall the app on my old and reinstall it on my new MBP. Seems like I have only two install possibilities, so I don't want to lose one, if possible. Anyone out there who can help?

    Thanks a lot, Les. I'll try it out.
