Does using Execute() make a difference?
No, same behavior with Execute(), works double clicking the program, doesn't work from cron.

if I load a SVG image, is it treated as a vector or bitmap graphics, for example, when changing from windowed to fullscreen?

Re: Any risk in using Hollywood reserved CONSTs?

The script needn't exist because it will never be run when using -exportconstants or -exportcommands. It's just a matter of syntax so you can pass whatever you want. It's just that filename argument needs to be there.
Thanks for the tip.

Re: Any risk in using Hollywood reserved CONSTs?

Also, is there a list of Hollywoods reserved Consts somewhere?
You can get those running:

Code: Select all

hollywood dummy.hws -exportconstants output.file
The dummy.hws file only has one line containing "end()"

@Andreas
Is it possible to run Hollywood without a script for getting this kind of info?
