The increased take-up of Interactive Television, 3G and broadband networks is effecting a growth in the use of interactive, timeline-based media. This paper will describe how to facilitate the design of linear narrative systems utilising the extensibility features of the unified modelling language (UML).
The UML provides a solution to model the integration of such diverse media as 3D animation and still imagery within a single design solution. Current technologies extend well beyond their established models, incorporating UML into the design process will bring differing media technologies into the realm of the software developer, facilitating a cohesive approach to interactive systems.
