Software News   Software News : Hollywood 4: VideoUp is out now
   posted by softwarefailure on 28-Feb-2009 9:53:31 (4715 reads)
Airsoft Softwair are proud to annouce the immediate availability of Hollywood 4: VideoUp. This is a major update which brings along many new features and general improvements over Hollywood 3. The biggest new feature is that Hollywood can now export AVI videos. Now Amiga users can for the first time create high quality video presentations with only a few mouse clicks - on their Amiga with Hollywood.

Also, you can use the powerful new auto scaling engines to export the video file in any resolution you like. All vector graphics (including true type text) will be scaled without quality losses so that they will look perfectly sharp even in high-end resolutions like 1920*1080 pixels. Hollywood uses the professional Motion JPEG codec (MJPEG) for video export which guarantees high quality videos and good compression. MJPEG can be played by all major video players on Amiga (e.g. DVPlayer under OS4 or MPlayer under MorphOS). Videos can be as long as your hard-drive space permits. By using the OpenDML AVI 2.0 standard, Hollywood is able to export AVIs that are greater than 4 GB without problems.

Of course, video files created by Hollywood can also use audio streams. Hollywood uses sophisticated techniques to guarantee perfect timing between video and audio. In fact, Hollywood 4's video engine was designed especially with the goal in mind that the timing of the original Hollywood script is exactly replicated in the video file. So you can create videos that are perfectly synchronized to music, for instance! Furthermore, you can use other programs to convert the video file created by Hollywood into a MPEG2 video and then burn it onto a DVD. Thus, you can use your Amiga to create your own videos!

Besides this impressing new feature Hollywood 4 has several other cool new features. Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in Hollywood 4:

- Create AVI videos with Hollywood!
- Layers system completely rewritten - much more powerful now!
- Support for layer rotation & scaling
- Mac OS X for Intel is now natively supported!
- Support for true type fonts also under Windows & Mac
- Powerful scaling engines allow promotion to any resolution
- Transition effects can run asynchronously now
- Support for 32-bit mouse pointer images
- Mouse wheel support is now implemented
- Hollywood applets can use compression now
- Support for virtual files inside other files
- Applets can be imported into Hollywood scripts
- Many new masking techniques available
- Files over 4 GB are now supported
- Cool new features in the DOS library
- Added support for dynamic object id selection
- Hollywood code can be saved & loaded at runtime now
- 10 new example scripts (over 60 in total)
- Standard library set encompasses over 420 functions now!
- Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Hollywood 4 is Airsoft Softwair's ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for every Amiga user who wants to use the full power that is in his machine. Hollywood is available on a CD-ROM and as a download version. 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 already own Hollywood, you can buy a discounted upgrade version. People who bought Hollywood 3 in 2009 are eligible for a free upgrade to version 4.

Visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage for screenshots of Hollywood 4 in action.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms and the other two modern desktop systems, Windows and Mac OS! With Hollywood, you can save programs for all those platforms. You do not have to have AmigaOS4 or AROS, you can save programs for these platforms also from your AmigaOS3 installation! You do not need to have Mac OS X, you can still compile your programs for it using your AmigaOS or MorphOS installation. Only Hollywood makes it possible. If you want to learn more about Hollywood, please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage.

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood 4: VideoUp today!

Congratulations. Nice to see the development progresses.

I would buy Hollywood 4 together with the Designer 2.1, but the overall price is too much for me. I would pay max. 100 Euro for both, though.

Btw. will the Designer be upgraded too?

Video Editing software is what will bring Ami back.

How do you compare Hollywood 4 with major software like Aftereffects or Final Cut?
30%? 50% ?

Keep up the good work.

This is the best news i have seen for ages!

Hollywood / Hollywood Designer is high quiality software and I can recomend it to everyone! I do hope that this version will get alot of support - both from old and new users!

Andreas Falkenhahn is one of the greatest coders developing software to amigaOS and morphOS. The quality of his programs are so high that we (Ferrule Media) use it to create our own commercial dental-sofware.

The price of his software is even suprisingly low! Buy and try it.. you will not regret it! :) I just ordered the upgrade myself!

Best regards

As I read the feature list there is no video playback possibility. The new killer feature is that you can save the script's display output directly to avi.

So wait a bit with that strip poker :)

I'm wondering if there will be an update to the Designer package too to take advantage of some of these new features?

If you have AmigaOS 3.x you must have a graphics card or you can use the native Amiga modes, like AGA?
