Hello!

Hollywood/Hollywood Designer is one of the most impressive software-packages available to OS4. The author Andreas Falkenhahn has even made the effort of supporting both amigaOS and morphOS. I know that Andreas hasn't released any demos of the software so i guess many users wonders how powerful his software really is ?

Myself I use Hollywood Designer to develop commercial software. I don't have any knowledge about coding but i'm still able to make some nice software using his programs. Designer makes me develop software simply by point and click, using a very nice and clean graphical userinterface (mui).

I have added a few examples (OS4) of what is possible to make in Hollywood Designer. It is small bits and pieces of Ferrule Medias software Dental Info. In addition I have added a media-presentation from our software Dental Kanal (Dental Channel). This will show how Designers ability to make high quality media-presentations!

I can recomend Hollywood/Hollywood Designer to anyone! If you have got any questions i would be happy to answer!


Example 1
An example of one of the menus in Dental Info. This only shows the menu, and it is not possible to click on the links.
http://www.ferrule-media.no/amiga/DentalGuiOS4.exe

Example 2 :
An example of a "homepage" created in Designer
http://www.ferrule-media.no/amiga/HomepageOS4

Example 3 :
A multimedia-presentation taken from Dental Kanal. (needs the minimun resolution of 1366*768)

Hollywood looks very cool. I've been thinking about getting, but what I'd mostly be making are things that can be used in Windows.. like a Powerpoint replacement.

There is no demo version of Hollywood, but what I'd really like to see is some Windows .exe made from Hollywood to see how it works/performs.

looks nice. Is hollywood good for making music videos ? For example videos for technomusic. To be in sync and have movable stuff on the screen. 3D gfx, tunnels etc ? Or is it just to make presentations ?

Yes that would interest me also - how good is Hollywood at syncing gfx/anim/presentation stuff with MP3 music?

@AmigaHeretic

If you compile a project to run on windows it will run smoother than on real amigas. This is because of the hardware beeing used is more powerful compared to SAM or AmigaONE.

I just made a small gui for an install-cd - this is an example of how a pc-executable made in Hollywood may look like :) (needs either win2000,XP or Vista)

I just tried demoinfocd.exe on my $99.00 WindowsXP box and it runs in a window.

Do you have any fullscreen examples?

Anything with gfx + sfx + music?

Hi there!

I'll try to upload a windows-demo of Dental Kanal withinn the next couple of day. I will add some music aswell - then you may see how it performs:)

Regarding fullscreen - Hollywood 4 supports fullscreen-projects under Windows. Designer 2.1 is however not updated to support this yet - this will be fixed in the next version i have been told.

It is prefered to be a coder to unleash the true power of Hollywood/Designer :) People like myself are still able to make decent stuff without coding a single line.

What I like the most with Hollywood/Designer is the ability to make executables to different platforms withinn seconds. To be able to add all graphics and sound withinn the executable to protect it from piracy. Hollywood 4 has even got some high quality scaling-abilites so you may scale the size of the project simply by dragging the window-boarder.

Maybe some of the other hollywood-users would like to shear their opinion of Hollywood 4 ? There are several users in here with alot of knowledge about Hollywood 4 coding. :)

best regards
Torgeir

Likewise..seems very cool, but a native Linux or OSX version would make it a definite for me, for the $$.

If you ran AROS hosted under Linux you'd be able to run Hollywood already. Admittedly, being able to compile a native Linux app would be nice too.

@wegster

Is it Hollywood + Designer you would like as native osX-version ?

If it was the executables you were talking about, I guess you are aware of the following : With the click of a button Hollywood is able to produce executables with support for either :

*AmigaOS3
*MorphOS
*AmigaOS4
*WarpOS
*Aros
*Windows (I have tried them on 2000,XP and Vista)
*MacOS (Powerpc)
*MacOS (x86)

I think this list is very impressive!The lack of producing a linux-executable shouldn't be a showstopper and preventing anyone from buying it - with enough sales I'm sure Hollywood 5 will appear in the future with even more improvements :)

Best regards
Torgeir

IMHO Wine works very well in many cases, so has anyone bothered trying to run Hollywood presentations in Linux using wine?

I think someone should do a little Youtube Video demoing what kind of stuff you can make with Hollywood Designer, and maybe showing a little bit of the development process.

Hello guys,
I'm an happy user of Hollywood 4, someone have asked for more user's experience so here is my thoughts :)

I use Hollywood directly, without Designer, mainly under WinUAE and with Notepad++ (win) as text editor to code my scripts.
I've found this solution the best for me because when I'm at work (during the launch break) I can continue my projects stored in a USB drive.

The bigger project I'm working so far is ScuiLib, a Gui library you can use to build guis for your applications, actually is around 14.000 lines of source code with a couple of small additional includes. This means that Hollywood is very very stable and you can work with very big projects without problems.

Hollywood is multimedia oriented but IMHO can be considered a multi-purpose language since along graphics and sounds it covers many programming areas like file handling, memory handling, user input, powerful data handling and so on.
Hollywood language has many similarities with LUA syntax and concept, people that have coded with LUA will find Hollywood language very simple to understand.

What can I say more: I'm very happy to have Hollywood 3 before and Hollywood 4 now, it's a must have for all ppls don't want to bother with C and is short in time to develop their applications.

Here is a video of the ScuiLib 0.6 WIP developed with HW3 (pretty old TBH), now released and completed:

-----
About music synch Hollywood does not have any type of beat detection but you can always define timers that can trigger your own fx routines. Timing in Hollywood is a key features, don't should be difficult to build a synched video with your preferred music.
Forget tunnels and 3d fx, because 3d is not supported at all.

IMO Hollywood is must
Sorry for the long post

yes, Hollywood Designer is impressive, but we need source code examples, with easy examples, medium and high, because with the program the examples included are very beauty and full, but this is as if I that drive a Renault Megane today, I tomorrow driveone Ferrari, result accident or that I couldn't get the best of Ferrari.

Hey you don't forget that Hollywood is very easy to do things easy as a single pic viewer or a little prsentation with pics and background music, and very easy the difficult is when you want make a game, where now I'm stopped.

But Hollywood is more easy that Amiblizt or C.

I think that making a game is more difficult only because the task is bigger and more complex and not because of Hollywood.
Some week ago I've started shaping an isometric engine just to test HW capabilities, nothing more then a tile map scroller and a buddy walking around... I've found more difficult the tile logic then the HW commands used to code the test

Hollywood/Designer has proven to be very stable for me aswell.

My project Dental Info consists of close to 140 000 lines of code (2.2mb sourcecode) - everything made by Designer. Dental Info has never chrashed once for any of our customers :)

I find your Scuilib-project very nice btw! the picture-viewer you made using it was very neat aswell! Good luck with your project!:)

Dental info and Dental Channel eh?

Had a look, and strangely, it seemed to have nothing to do with teeth, or even dentists.
