The long awaited, major update 1.5 for Hollywood was released today. Because of the great new features and the long development time, there is an update fee of $22 USD (only for users, who bought Hollywood before April 1st 2003).

  • Support for multiple graphics layers
  • Full control of layer position, size, transparency and light setting
  • 68k version can also create MorphOS executables now and vice versa
  • Over 50 new impressing transition effects (totalling in over 100 now!)
  • Integrated image-processor that supports: Rotation, color inverting, gray scaling, axis flipping, texturing, mixing, lighten, darken, scale, stretch and tinting
  • Support for Intellifonts
  • All audio output is retargetable through AHI including full channel mixing and 16-bit stereo audio
  • Full control over master volume
  • Possibility to limit maximum number of frames per second
  • Windows can have a dynamic transparency
  • Joystick support!
  • Powerful object animation functions
  • Off-screen rendering
  • New GUI
  • Over 80 other useful new functions! (totalling in over 240 now!)
  • Many new impressing example programs
Malibu, the Scala plugin for Hollywood 1.5, will be released in a few days. You can already order it in a bundle with Hollywood 1.5 and save some money. Malibu is also available in a AmigaOS 68k version as well as in a MorphOS. Please have a look at the product pages of Malibu and Hollywood to get the ultimate overview over both products.

Sounds like a big improvement.

Still grabs are not very impressive as demos.

Is it not possible to release an MPEG or MOV file showing Hollywood in action?
Something that will play on Frogger or MooVid.

I'm not sure why Andreas doesn't make some compiled scripts available for download. In Hollywood you can compile a script which then doesn't need any external files (except for a couple of libraries) and can be freely distributed.

I've made a script for a Hollywood tutorial in Total Amiga issue 15 and I'm planning to upload the compiled version to our site when the magazine is published as an example. The script was made in 1.0 but I've just ordered my 1.5 upgrade :).

In reply to Comment 7 (JoannaK):
Theres also a Hollywood Promotion Pack on aminet (HollywoodPromo.lha),
which contains about 50 pics of applications done with Hollywood. Nice
apps, which give a good imagination about how powerful Hollywood is.
But theres no sample sourcecode or pictures of the editor in this

I would really like to see the syntax of this scripting language and
also like to know if a GUI is planned for future versions?

Hollywood is really an absolutely amazing tool. I got a beta of 1.5 from the author and you can't believe what's possible with layers - although "layer support" sounds kinda uninteresting, it is the ultimate key to full blown multimedia applications! This is what you need for real multimedia because there are now unlimited possibilities. Everyone should see that.

If he can make a Scala-like GUI for it, this could be a killer program.

The other thing needed is to be able to export a non-interactive show as an AVI or MOV file, for use on other platforms.

I wonder how Mediapoint is coming along? Like Scala, it was AGA only, but there was talk of making an RTG version.

Ron van Herk knows more about the status of Mediapoint.

<If he can make a Scala-like GUI>
Indeed ....Amiga-like computers are stil well-known for their video-capabilities.

Done a quick search on google, and it seems it lives and is planned for AmigaOS4 also...
