I used Shake a few times back before apple dumped it and I actually really liked it. I found the nodal interface more intuitive and satisfying than layers. Actually satisfying is maybe the key word there.

In any software using layers it feels as if, as a project grows in complexity the chance of it developing some problem which I have no idea how to fix approaches 1. The question is whether or not I can finish what I want to do before I lose the sense of what it is I'm actually doing. When I close AE at the end of a job I give thanks to the compositing gods that they have chosen not to punish me this time. Though maybe that's just my own lack of experience. Nodal interfaces seems to scale much better - complexity is additive rather than logarithmic.

I'm about to start learning AE properly. Would anyone out there recommend Nuke as an alternative? Given that most of my work will be simple fixes, keying, titles. I could be doing more complex stuff in the future though.
