Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.

Universal Shake 4.1 Drops in Price

Send Article to a Friend

Universal Shake 4.1 Drops in Price -- The latest Apple program to be released as a universal binary for native performance on Intel-based Macs is Shake 4.1, Apple's high-end video composition software used in many Hollywood productions. However, the more interesting news is that Apple slashed the price, from $3,000 to $500 (yes, the number of zeroes on those figures is correct). Rather than aiming solely for special-effects houses, the company is positioning Shake as an extension to Final Cut Studio. As Mike Curtis (who has extensive post-production experience) points out at his HD for Indies blog, however, Shake is not the sort of friendly application that average users are likely to pick up quickly; the price cut may indicate that Apple is moving on to Shake's successor, a possibility bolstered by the fact that Apple also announced that it is no longer selling the Apple Maintenance Program for Shake. Current owners of Shake 4 can upgrade to version 4.1 for $50. [JLC]
