contains versions for all Amiga compatible platforms: There are native versions of the program for
AmigaOS3 (m68k), WarpOS (ppc), MorphOS (ppc), AmigaOS4 (ppc) and even AROS (i386). A
download version is also offered. 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 1.x or Hollywood
2.0, you can buy a discounted upgrade version.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms! 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!

which will be released in a few days and will take presentation editing software on the Amiga
platform to a whole new level. You can already order Hollywood Designer 2.0 now and it will
be delivered to you as soon as it is released. In fact, you can save some money if you buy
