But the rest of the page is unresponsive. I have checked the action to run asynchronously. The page is supposed...

Re: Questions Regarding Hollywood

Hmmm... I need a series of text objects to scroll across the screen. One after the other. But I'm not sure how to achieve it.

Wow! I am actually quite pleased with what I've managed to create thus far using Hollywood Designer. Just simple, basic stuff, but at least I've stitched together something I'm very happy with in no time at all.

Re: Questions Regarding Hollywood

What do I have to do to get Hollywood to recognize my video files? Is there a special format? I've tried both mpegs and avi's with no luck. It just reports that it is of an unknown format.

Re: Questions Regarding Hollywood

Compiling for Linux (ARM) doesn't seem to be an option in Designer. Is this correct or have I missed something?
