Software News   Software News : Hollywood Designer 3.0 announcement
   posted by softwarefailure on 17-Oct-2010 12:21:11 (4089 reads)
After almost 3 years of development, Airsoft Softwair is very proud to announce the long awaited third incarnation of our famous Hollywood Designer. Hollywood Designer 3.0 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), Mac OS X (x86). This is a feature that is truly unique in the Amiga world.



Hollywood Designer 3.0 is a huge update and has endless new features and improvements over the previous versions. We do not want to bore you, so here are just some of them:

* Support for global project timeline: allows scheduling of slides in millisecond precision! (great for sync'ing slides and music)
* Introducing action events for much more artistic freedom
* Almost 40 different action events are supported!
* Unlimited number of effects can run simultaneously
*Unlimited number of anims can run simultaneously
* Incredibly powerful effect handler: page effects can run simultaneously with object effects
* Thumbnail view of all slides in the project
* Support for hotkeys during presentation mode (pause, forward, backward...)
* Event system completely redesigned - much more powerful now!
* All fonts can be linked into executables generated by Designer - no more worries about missing fonts!
* Support for platform independent text rendering: TrueType text looks exactly the same now on every system!
* Text objects can be rotated and distorted now, too
* Support for real layer transparency and tinting
* Inbuilt scaling engine allows promotion of projects to any screen mode
* Layer z-order is no longer tied to order of layer appearance
* On-the-fly animation of layers is possible using a special action event inspired by DPaint's "Move" functionality
* Mouse pointer can be changed during presentation
* GIF anims can be embedded in projects
* Supports cool new MUI 4.0 features (MorphOS version only)
* Added support for object anchor points
* Over 50 new transition effects
* UTF-8 support for all text objects
* Buttons are handled completely asynchronously now
* Projects can now be exported as AVI videos
* Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Without a doubt, Hollywood Designer 3.0 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 3.0 running on MorphOS 2.6. You can view them on our web site.

Hollywood Designer 3.0 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 3.0 will be available exclusively for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (ppc), and MorphOS (ppc). It is scheduled for release around Christmas 2010. Please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage for more information and screenshots.

Great news, and the fact it's exclusive to AmigaOS and MOS it's a plus many here will appreciate (compared to stuff also available for Win/Mac I mean) it shows dedication

good news.

But how does Hollywood improve a developers life ? Network support ?

I thought Hollywood would be the one language to be truly portable across Amiga systems, so why introduce specific MUI 4.0 (morphos only) features ?

Im sorry the screenshots are too small to see the quality.

@ asymetrix

As I understand it the MUI 4 features are used by designer *itself*, but aren't useable by designer projects (I would of course love the ability to create MUI apps with Hollywood - it is my biggest wish on my personal Hollywood wish list, but I think this wish will not coem true too soon).
Nice news anyway. Looking forward to the next Hollywood update as well.

I bought Hollywood, Hollywood Designer & Malibu recently, so just wondered about upgrade options.

Will it be a free download to existing customers?

I have only recently started programming, badly, with Hollywood and would be disappointed if it's not a free upgrade.

@1Mouse

This is a totally new version; an upgrade option will undoubtedly be offered for existing customers but to expect the latest version to be offered for free is a little unrealistic don't you think?

The Hollywood and Designer packages are constantly evolving, and nicely at that. But it is reasonable to expect Airsoft to charge to upgrade to the latest version to cover their development costs - the purchase of a product doesn't give the user unlimited access to future versions, but by offering a discounted upgrade path it reflects said costs incurred by the developer WHILST rewarding the user for their product loyalty & previous custom.

Cheers,
Rude!

Congratulations to Airsoft Softwair!

We have been using Designer 3.0 for some time now, and I the software is amazing! Version 3.0 is really a powerful tool to create both software and presentations.
The stability is also superb – the 700pages-project Airsoft Softwair is talking about is not a simple slideshow but a program called Dental Info. Each page is pretty complex containing 25-50 objects to create interactive menus and navigation-system. The source code alone is 10 mb and Designer has no problems at all handling it. Being able to compile this into an executable that works on all flavors of Windows is great!

In my eyes Hollywood Designer 3.0 is the most exciting software released for the amiga + clones for several years! I'm looking forward to see what other users comes up with once they get their hands on Designer.

Screenshots of the Designer-made Dental Info are present at here.

Best regards

It would be if it were true, but it isn't. "Runs on Windows 2000 and up" unfortunately.

Well, you are probably correct - to be honest I have never tried the executables on win 98 or older.. and I do not know anyone still using these OS'es - atleast none of our customers still does.

I have however tested on Win 2000, Win 2003 (server), XP, Vista and Windows 7 - and our software both looks and acts the same way on all those systems . (Aswell as Macs).

So even if it should not work on win 3.11, win95 and win 98 this is still pretty impressive don't you think?

I hope that a future release (maybe 3.5) could create also software for Android and IPhone...

Then it will be the perfect "Developing KIller Application" for Amiga.

Buy Amiga, buy Hollywood and develop quickly and easily software for a vaste range of platforms...
