Moving from the concept of discrete sequences of 2D slides towards smooth 3D multimodal hierarchical presentations promises many improvements in quality and effectiveness of presentations. On the other hand, such a move poses many difficulties, one of which is how to arrange content in a 3D space. This task becomes further complicated when the story-graph of the presentation is evolving and is more complex than a single linear story-path. In this work, we propose a framework for automatically solving the task of 3D content placement, which is based on views – 3D replacement for slides. We also examplify our proposed approach with two spatial layouts for 3D non-linear presentations: "nested spheres" and a 'building', as well as algorithms that automatically create these layouts from an abstract hierarchical story-graph.
