Software News : Hollywood Designer 3.0 announcement
Posted by softwarefailure on 2010/10/17 14:19:31 (1677 reads) News by the same author
Software News

After almost 3 years of development, Airsoft Softwair is very proud to announce the long awaited third incarnation of our famous Hollywood Designer. Hollywood Designer 3.0 is a multimedia authoring system that runs on top of Hollywood and can be used to create all sorts of multimedia based applications; for example presentations, slide shows, simple games, and programs.

Thanks to Hollywood, all multimedia applications created using Hollywood Designer can be exported as stand-alone executables for the following systems: AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS (x86), Windows (x86), Mac OS X (PPC), Mac OS X (x86). This is a feature that is truly unique in the Amiga world.

Hollywood Designer 3.0 is a huge update and has endless new features and improvements over the previous versions. We do not want to bore you, so here are just some of them:

* Support for global project timeline: allows scheduling of slides in millisecond precision! (great for sync'ing slides and music)
* Introducing action events for much more artistic freedom
* Almost 40 different action events are supported!
* Unlimited number of effects can run simultaneously
*Unlimited number of anims can run simultaneously
* Incredibly powerful effect handler: page effects can run simultaneously with object effects
* Thumbnail view of all slides in the project
* Support for hotkeys during presentation mode (pause, forward, backward...)
* Event system completely redesigned - much more powerful now!
* All fonts can be linked into executables generated by Designer - no more worries about missing fonts!
* Support for platform independent text rendering: TrueType text looks exactly the same now on every system!
* Text objects can be rotated and distorted now, too
* Support for real layer transparency and tinting
* Inbuilt scaling engine allows promotion of projects to any screen mode
* Layer z-order is no longer tied to order of layer appearance
* On-the-fly animation of layers is possible using a special action event inspired by DPaint's "Move" functionality
* Mouse pointer can be changed during presentation
* GIF anims can be embedded in projects
* Supports cool new MUI 4.0 features (MorphOS version only)
* Added support for object anchor points
* Over 50 new transition effects
* UTF-8 support for all text objects
* Buttons are handled completely asynchronously now
* Projects can now be exported as AVI videos
* Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Without a doubt, Hollywood Designer 3.0 is the definitive multimedia solution for all Amiga compatible platforms, but as a picture is worth a thousand words, we have made some screenshots of Hollywood Designer 3.0 running on MorphOS 2.6. You can view them on our web site.

Hollywood Designer 3.0 is a very stable and mature multimedia authoring system. We would like to emphasize that it is not only suited for personal use, but also for professional commercial customers. Ferrule Media, for instance, have created an info channel containing over 700 unique slides in a single project with Hollywood Designer. Hollywood Designer was designed to handle these huge projects efficiently so that they can run 24 hours a day and 7 days a week without any visible memory fragmentation!

Hollywood Designer 3.0 will be available exclusively for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (ppc), and MorphOS (ppc). It is scheduled for release around Christmas 2010. Please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage for more information and screenshots.

Impressive stuff! Is it planned to allow development on the Mac in the future rather than just being able to develop on the PC/Amiga and then save as a Mac executable ?

Looks excellent, think I may invest in a copy of this. Anyone know how well Hollywood executables run on Windows 7?

@ Daniel

They work perfectly. Infact our executables of Dental Info works perfectly on windows 2000, 2003 (Server) XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Dental Info is made using Designer 3.0 (os4) - take a look at our homepage for screenshots.

best regards
