Modelling Reactive Multimedia: Design and Authoring

Thompson, Simon, King, Peter, Cameron, Helen (2005) Modelling Reactive Multimedia: Design and Authoring. Multimedia Tools and Applications, 27 (1). pp. 23-52. ISSN 1380-7501. (doi:10.1007/s11042-005-2713-9) (KAR id:42672)


Multimedia document authoring is a multifaceted activity, and authoring tools tend to concentrate on a restricted set of the activities involved in the creation of a multimedia artifact. In particular, a distinction may be drawn between the design and the implementation of a multimedia artifact.

This paper presents a comparison of three different authoring paradigms, based on the common case study of a simple interactive animation. We present details of its implementation using the three different authoring tools, MCF, Fran and SMIL 2.0, and we discuss the conclusions that may be drawn from our comparison of the three approaches.
