Announcement: Hollywood Designer 3.0
Press release: 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 totally 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, here are some screenshots of Hollywood Designer 3.0 running on MorphOS 2.6.

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 contact us with any questions you may have. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Bulletin Board System: DLG now open source
The Bulletin Board System DLG, as well as its source code, has been released by Jeff Grimmett and can be downloaded from Aminet now. DLG began as Dialog BBS for the Amiga and was based on the concept of creating an extension to the Amiga operating system for BBS communications.

DLG consists of a number of small, compact modules that present a minimal memory footprint while in operation. The core of the software is a serial port handler that binds the serial port to an interactive shell session, a resource manager to coordinate locking and releasing of important BBS resources (file and message areas, etc.) and a core runtime library containing the most important and widely used functionality in the BBS. Eventually the BBS was extended to utilize the ARexx interpreted scripting language as well. (snx)
