Looks like Apple may have EOL'd Shake according to some rumor sites.
Apple appears to have finally discontinued Shake, its long-standing high-end digital compositing and visual effects software package. While Shake's product pages remain available on Apple's site, it is no longer listed in the online Apple Store and MacRumors has received word that Apple sales representatives have been informed of the product's discontinuation.
The link to Shake redirects to Final Cut Studio as of this post. It'll be interesting to see if something replaces it or takes it's place (Motion?) or some of it's functionality is abandoned altogether.
Most people (who pirated it) used it for not much more than converting 29.97fps to 24fps anyway, maybe Apple realized this.
