5.1 Plugins

Hollywood's functionality can be greatly enhanced via plugins. Plugins can provide load and save support for additional video, audio, image, and sample formats, they can extend the command set of the Hollywood language as well as enable Hollywood to use real vector graphics and it is even possible to write plugins which replace core parts of Hollywood like its inbuilt display and audio driver with custom implementations provided by plugins. It is also possible to write plugins which convert project files of other applications like Scala or PowerPoint into Hollywood scripts so that Hollywood can run these project files directly although they are not in the *.hws format.
