    Then I'm not sure why you stressed that Hollywood was a "commercial program" and that some Chrysalis users haven't "purchased it". To my mind, this would only make sense in a world where the Hollywood plugins are part of the Hollywood purchase and not freely downloadable, which btw would also mean that Hollywood programs weren't allowed to be distributed with any of those plugins. Furthermore, the Chrysalis Pack does contain Hollywood programs, which is why it also contains the required plugins. So why shouldn't the Chrysalis Pack contain any Hollywood plugins, again?

    Maybe if you better understood the rest of what I wrote in my reply, you would understand why I stressed that Hollywood (as a programming tool) is a commercial program, and only people who want to use it to create software should need the plug-ins. All software created with Hollywood should be compiled as a stand alone program, which requires the downloader to do nothing more than to double click on its icon, not go to the Hollywood site and download any plug-in that the software might require. Is that really so difficult to understand? I even gave you an example of the type of software that I would expect would need additional files in order to work, such as a port of a commercial product, where the data files would be needed, in order for the port to work. Hollywood makes it very easy to compile software as a stand alone executable, which includes the player, and unless I am mistaken, it would also include any plug-in needed to run such software. If that is not the case, I stand corrected, and the inclusion of Hollywood plug-ins in something like the Chrysalis Pack make sense.
