Finally! After a long time of development, the Multimedia authoring system Hollywood is available. Hollywood is a powerful and extensive program which is unique on the Amiga.
You could compare Hollywood with a modern version of Scala: But Hollywood works fully in 24bit mode
and uses only system functions to grant compatibility on every Amiga system.
Because of this extreme system friendly programming Hollywood does also run on Amiga emulators
with great speed. Versions of Hollywood for MorphOS and AmigaOS4 and maybe also AROS are planned.
On the Hollywood product page you will find an extensive overview including screenshots from the program.
In the next days some applications done with Hollywood will be presented here.
Hollywood is delivered on CD-ROM and can be ordered now.

Ok. I want this also on the DE so that I can run those presentations on desktops at work... AmigaOS for Apple laptop would also be sufficient.
Any hope of having some version bundled with OS4? Perhaps as a default boot anim/show player... ?

Definitely demands runtime engines so that you can distribute the shows across different platforms - Amiga/MOS, AmigaDE and ideally Windows.
If a standalone runtime player was created it would certainly help promote the product and encourage its use. I can appreciate the problem with piracy of the editor, but work create with the application should be able to be distributed standalone.

I have to admit, it does look impressive. I've never needed a "multimedia presentation" program, but even so I did enjoy playing with CanDo! and Scala back in the day...
I'll probably buy it when I get OS4... I can't imagine the crossfades etc. being all that snappy on 68k :)

Yeah, the 24 bits crossfades are probably very very slow :) (a MorphOS port should take just a recompile AFAICS, unless maybe the scripting engine uses some weird 68k hacks).
However, according to the (highly biased ;)) description, it looks quite interesting. Not that I need a multimedia applications creator... But if one can make small shockwave-like games easily with it, it might be fun.

Good to see this product is progressing well since it was last reported. Perhaps it will be one of those killer apps for the next generation of Amigas.

Who said AROS wouldn't get any applications?

Well it sounds OK, but static screenshots cannot give a true representation of the programs abilities.
How about an anim, mpeg or avi of Hollywood doing its stuff?

Hollywood is able to "compile" your scripts into executables which can be freely distributed. I'm pretty sure that Andreas will upload some examples to Aminet anytime soon.

Looks nice, I'd have to test it, but the price is very cheap if it keeps up to its promises.

An AmigaVision-style programming interface would be a nice addition.

So would an ARexx port be. That really is the standard Amiga script language and one of the Amiga's strong points.
