Designers of interactive multi-media applications face the decision when and how to be presented information has to take the form of text, graphics, animation, video stills, moving video, sound, or any combination of the former. This contribution focusses on design decisions with respect to the use of live or animated video segments with or without sound. First, functions and utilization patterns of video as a component of multimedia systems are presented. Next, research on audiovisual design is reviewed with respect to camera factors, audio factors, optical effect and special effects, pacing and rhythm, animation, picture complexity, and using two channels (visual and audio).
