Software News   Software News : Hollywood Designer 4.0 out now!
   posted by softwarefailure on 17-Jun-2012 10:35:51 (3514 reads)
After 18 months of intense development, Airsoft Softwair is very proud to announce the immediate availability of the long awaited fourth incarnation of our famous Hollywood Designer. Hollywood Designer 4.0 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 & x86) and Linux (PPC & x86). This is a feature that is totally unique in the Amiga world.

Hollywood Designer 4.0 is a huge update and has many new features and improvements over the previous version. We do not want to bore you, so here are just some of them:

* Ready for Hollywood 5.0: Infinity!
* Video clips can now be embedded in your projects
* Support for vector formats like SVG
* Over 25 filter effects for layers like blur, emboss, sharpen, gamma correction...
* Support for real, curve-based vector graphics
* Powerful improvements in the action events system: loops and conditions now possible!
* Multiple languages can be embedded in a single project
* Support for the Hollywood 5.0 plugin system: you can use all file formats that your Hollywood plugins support
* Support for password protected presentations
* Projects can use screen blanker pages
* Projects can now listen to keyboard events
* Cool new gradient types like conical, radial and multi-linear gradients
* Shadow and border now supported for every object type
* Much better looking drop shadows using alpha channel transparency
* Custom user color palette can now be defined
* Over 10 new action events (over 50 altogether!)
* 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 filter effects, vector graphics, image import, and text.

Without a doubt, Hollywood Designer 4.0 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 4.0 running on MorphOS and AmigaOS 4 for you to see here.

Hollywood Designer 4.0 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 4.0 comes on a CD-ROM that contains versions for all supported platforms: There are native versions of the program for AmigaOS3 (m68k), WarpOS (ppc), MorphOS (ppc), and AmigaOS4 (ppc). A download version is also offered. If you order the download version, you will have to download an ISO image which you need to burn on CD-R then. If you order the CD-ROM version, you will get a nice digipak. If you already own a previous version of Hollywood Designer, you can buy a discounted upgrade version.

Please note that Hollywood Designer 4.0 runs on top of the Multimedia Application Layer Hollywood 5.0. Thus, Hollywood 5.0 is strictly required for Hollywood Designer 4.0. 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 5.0 & Hollywood Designer 4.0.

Power up your Amiga system with Hollywood 5.0 & Hollywood Designer 4.0 and order now!

@djnick

I don't think so, but it can do stuff like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnIVbPXHFpI

With extreme ease, plus the whole thing can be exported as an AVI - which is how I got it up onto YT.

@Rob

Thats Hollywood, not Hollywood Designer.

Congratulations with the release of Designer 4.0! Order will be placed soon! :)

We have been running our Infochannel Dental Kanal for several years all ready, without any stability problems related to Hollywood or OS4.1. The actual presentation is executed from an usb-pen connected to the back of the machine, and the only time we have seen problems it has been caused by hardware-problems related to the actual usb-pen.

Our main-software Dental Info (Also developed using Designer) has also been extremely stable. Even if we have been on the market for several years we have never had any reports that the software has crashed - and our customers are running the same executables on all flavours of windows, ranging from Win 2000 to Win 7.

Just as important is the stability of Hollywood and Hollywood Designer itself. When we are developing our software it is important that the developer tools doesn't crash every 5 minutes. This is where the software from Airsoft really shines! They have created powerful developing tools that are both stable, easy to use, and powerful enough to create commercial software. To have something like this available on AmigaOS/MorphOS is great, and to see that Airsoft is still developing this software is simply amazing. This is 2012, pretty far from when the Amiga marked was on top. Still, Hollywood + Designer is probably the most polished software package ever released on our platform.

Thanks to Airsoft Softwair we (Ferrule Media) now have the marked leading software of its kind in Norway, and a growing number of customers in Denmark. Thanks to the new Multilanguage-functions in Designer 4.0 it will be easy to expand to other countries as well.

We don't have any actual coders in Ferrule Media - yet we have created several programs. This would not have happened without Hollywood / Designer.

In the end I would like to say that you don't have to be a commercial developer to buy Hollywood/Designer - the package offers a lot of fun for everyone. I hope this amazing new list of features will attract lots of new customers. Airsoft Softwair deserves it, and we (the Amiga/Morph community) need to show that we deserve a commercial developer like Airsoft Softwair.

Hmmm looks very nice.

I have to admit that you have stable way to evolve to Photoshop clone! You have lots of tools that even DrawStudio and ArtEffects don't have...

Imagine Hollywood Painter... Photoshop for Amiga :) Or Hollywood Art Studio - Illustrator clone :)

Hi Rob

Thanks for the .exe

Just installed & tried... It has no interface, just coding window? I meant about real testing demo for Amiga [or PC, whatever] - Designer module... Don't like coding much ;)

Hi djnick

Sadly there is no demo of Designer.

Hollywood is a coding language, and you could consider Hollywood as the brain of Hollywood Designer - without the brain Designer will not work. Also, Hollywood Designer is only available on AmigaOS.

With Hollywood Designer it is possible to create cool stuff without any real knowledge about how to code:) I used to be a graphician in the demoscene, and this made it very fun to work with Designer. The knowledge and experience you have with gfx will make it easy to get the most out of Designer.

Currently the only way to get an idea of how Designer works, is by looking at the screenshots or the linked youtube-films.
