This is my most eagerly waited software upgrade at the moment, on any platform. I bought the last version of Hollywood to do my Electronics Design presentation with and it showed off the work that I had done on my designs brilliantly - more so than the others because it was something a little different to the normal run of the mill PowerPoint Presentation.

I did find that the performance was not quite good enough, even on my 68060 machine, so speed improvements are definately welcome and especially a native WOS version because now I can run it on a 240Mhz 603!!!

I'm looking forward to trying Hollywood Designer, that's interesting. My biggest original complaint with Hollywood was it's text based interface, although admittedly I've found that since I've learnt how to use a text based interface for my presentations, it's actually a very powerful way to organise your scripts. Hollywood designer should allow me to knock out presentations much faster though, so great!

The other imrpovements all sound excellent as well. It's a pity that this hasn't been released sooner because I've got my second Electronics Design presentation in about 3 weeks, but given the work that has been done since the last version of Hollywood I'm pleasently suprised that's it almost ready for release already!! I'm still holding out hope that maybe it'll be released JUST in time for me to complete my next presentation on it.

Good luck Airsoft.

PS: Any ideas on what the uprgade price will be?

Wow!!!! Hollywood is REALLY shaping up it seams!
I would love to own a copy and play around with it
under AmigaOS4 on my AmigaOne! I guess that
will happen, as he seems to try to support every
amiga platform! This looks really good!

Great work as usual.

It's great to see software continuing to be developed for this market.

I'm on the wrong side of my pay cycle (I get paid monthly and this is the "famine fortnight").

As soon as I have the readies this is my first purchase.
