Software News : Hollywood Designer 5.0: The Return of a Legend

Software News

Legends never die: Eight years after the release of Hollywood Designer 4.0, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are finally proud to present the long awaited fifth incarnation of our famous Hollywood Designer.

Hollywood Designer 5.0 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, games, and applications. 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, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. This is a feature that is totally unique in the Amiga world!

Hollywood Designer 5.0 is a massive update and boasts lots of new features and improvements over the previous version, released almost 8 years ago. We do not want to bore you, so here are just some of them:

* Ready for Hollywood 8.0: Supremacy!
* Full Unicode support
* Guide and grid support for convenient layouting
* Multi-user support with advanced permission management
* Import objects from other projects
* Full support for Hollywood video layers
* Control bars for video objects
* Curves are now drawn as real Bézier splines - looks so much better!
* Multiple sound streams can be playing at the same time
* AROS version available for the first time
* Objects can be exported as images
* Full support for MUI 5.0 on all platforms
* New browse mode for projects
* Much more efficient I/O
* Support for presentation remotes
* Advanced search functionality
* Plugins can be linked to executables
* Lots of new action events
* Many more options for embedding custom code
* Full support for Hollywood 8.0's plugin interface
* Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Hollywood Designer is no longer limited to "just" being an authoring software, it can now also be used as a flexible graphics editor because it supports many features of modern graphics editors like multiple layers with over 30 filter effects, vector graphics, image import, and text.

Having been in development for almost 20 years, Hollywood Designer 5.0 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 2000 (!) 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! Ferrule Media's info channel, created with Hollywood Designer, is running in dental clinics all over Norway.

Hollywood Designer 5.0 is available as a CD and a download version. There are native versions of the program for AmigaOS3 (m68k), WarpOS (ppc), MorphOS (ppc), AmigaOS4 (ppc), and AROS (x86). If you already own a previous version of Hollywood Designer, you can buy a discounted upgrade version. People who bought Hollywood Designer 4.0 in 2020 can request a free upgrade.

Please note that Hollywood Designer 5.0 runs on top of the Multimedia Application Layer Hollywood 8.0. Thus, Hollywood 8.0 is strictly required for Hollywood Designer 5.0. Both programs are available in a special bundle which is the ultimate package for every power Amiga user who wants to see what his system can do with Hollywood 8.0 & Hollywood Designer 5.0.

Please consider buying Hollywood Designer 5.0 to show your support for our massive Amiga development efforts. Power up your Amiga system with Hollywood 8.0 & Hollywood Designer 5.0 and order now!

 Hollywood Designer 5.0: The Return of a Legend
Very nice update! Purchased and used to create a drawing of my test equipment setup for work. Added links to the pictures of the equimpment which bring up the webpage for that particular peice of equipment. Created executables for OS4, Windows32 and Windows64. All worked great. Love the enhancements! Thanks! I should note that I tried doing the drawing with several other AmigaOS4 drawing programs and this was by far the easiest to use and didn't crash like some. It has enough drawing tools to be a nice little structured drawing program as well.
