Internet News   Internet News : Unofficial Hollywood forum
   posted by Lazi on 20-Jan-2006 14:23:39 (2159 reads)
You can join this group to discuss about Airsoft Softwair's
multimedia authoring beast Hollywood!
This is an unofficial support forum for active users and enquirers.

To join the forum visit amiga_hollywood at yahoogroups.



Hollywood is the Multimedia Application Layer for Amiga(tm) and compatible
operating systems. That means that it offers a powerful 64-bit script
language together with advanced functions that allow you to create your own
multimedia applications, ranging from a simple slideshow to a complex game.
Hollywood is distributed on a CD-ROM that contains an AmigaOS 3 (68k)
version, a WarpOS (PowerPC), MorphOS (PowerPC) and AmigaOS 4 (PowerPC)
versions, and also an AROS (i386) version.

The big advantage of Hollywood is that it does all the framework for you.
You do not have to care, for example, whether your application is going to
run on 68k, PowerPC or i386. With Hollywood it runs on all of them. Even for
the most complex operations, Hollywood has simple functions that do them,
so you can concentrate yourself on the important thing - your application.
The powerful Hollywood scheduler allows you to create presentations that are
perfectly synchronized to the music - no matter if your presentation runs on
a 50 Mhz or 1 Ghz CPU.

Hollywood is fully 32-bit enhanced which means that you can use images with
up to 16.7 million colors and an alpha channel. Additionally, it is fully
integrated into AmigaOS(tm) and does not rely on any specific custom chip
hardware to be available. Therefore, Hollywood also runs on emulations like
Amithlon or WinUAE with amazing speed. Hollywood comes with a GUI that
allows to control the program efficiently and easily.

Using the Hollywood script language, the possibilities are almost unlimited.
The basic version of Hollywood comes with over 350 functions that range
from disk operating system (DOS) functions to functions that allow you to
smoothly scroll animations and graphics over your display. There are also
many functions that allow you to display objects, pictures and texts with
over 150 cool transition effects, or scale graphics and animations. You can
also 24-bit fade objects, text and pictures smoothly. With the new Hollywood
layers nothing is impossible: You have full control over the position,
transparency and light settings of every layer which allows you to realize
almost everything!

Maybe this is a question for the new Hollywood list:

With Hollywood v2's new programming features, would it be possible to make a user interface just like those Digital Photo Kiosks you see at Wal-Mart and Costco?

Is there a touch-screen driver available for Amigas?

The photo kiosks I use to have my digital photos printed are so slow and clumsy, it would seem as though they're operating with a i286! The time has past already, but imagine if Eyetech/Hyperion could have managed to sell Amiga-branded Kiosks to every Wal-Mart in North America. Too bad...

Simon (Rigo) has developed/coded a complete touch screen system for His Amiga
wether he will release it for sale as a complete kit to the general public I don't know.
But I sure hope that he will











(thats as least two sales Simon )

If there is sufficient interest, I might be talkied into releasing a complete package. Depending on the deal I might be able to wangle with the supplier, the price will either be expensive, or extortionate. So I really need to see what kind of level of interest would revolve around a project such as this.

It is a cool piece of kit though, especially with OS4 drivers :)

@Toaks

Can't someone start a group without someone popping on to say that the host service sucks? Get over yourself.
