Shake has more of these weird little nuances, and while you'll certainly get used to them after a few days, they'll definitely make the initial learning curve steeper. It's also tough to acclimatize yourself to Shake when you've been away from it for a few weeks or months - though chances are that if you're using an app like this, you're going to use it full time. It's an unfortunate contrast to an application such as After Effects, which is easier to learn because it fundamentally behaves like other Mac apps, whereas Shake is really an island unto itself.
The bottom line. If you can spend the extra time to learn The Shake Way, you'll definitely be better off. Quirky interface or not, Shake gives you a lineup of world-class, battle-tested compositing tools, and all for a relative pittance. No other software, on no other platform, even comes close.
Shake represents each image clip and each operation you might apply (chroma key, filter, image stabilizer) as a node. Just arrange the nodes to build your composite.

Un-Mac-like interface. 3D compositing lacks lighting effects.
