Description INTRODUCTION Creating multimedia presentations can be a complex and time-consuming process. We believe that a key to reducing the authoring burden is the use of structure-based authoring tools [1], [2]. These allow the explicit manipulation of the structure of a presentation rather than the implicit manipulation of this structure via, for example, a time-line. The CMIF authoring system supports the composition of hypermedia presentations from existing media data objects. CMIF (CWI Multimedia Interchange Format) is a systemindependent representation for hypermedia presentations; CMIFed (CMIF editor) is the main tool for creating CMIF presentations [3]. CMIF presentations can contain text, images, video and audio. These are referred to as (media) data objects. The data objects are generally kept in separate files, which may use a number of standard formats (e.g. GIF, TIFF and JPEG images are all acceptable). The author can impose structure by placing data objects in a tree. Roug
