If you've been trying out the Story Remix preview on the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview builds, you'll notice a rather large chunk of its feature-set that was demoed at Build earlier this year is missing. Features such as being able to import 3D effects and objects are missing in action, and my sources tell me that's because those features won't be ready in time for the Fall Creators Update.
My contacts say that Story Remix itself will be ready with the Fall Creators Update, but being able to insert 3D objects and effects into your video; arguably Story Remix's blockbuster feature, still needs work and as such will not be showing up alongside the launch of the Fall Creators Update. I'm told Insiders can expect to see that functionality show up in the months after the Fall Creators Update launches, likely during the Redstone 4 development cycle.
This will undoubtedly be disappointing news for those who were interested in the 3D capabilities of Story Remix. Microsoft showcased being able to add effects and characters to scenes, lock them in place, and have the 3D object track itself in the video as if it was there all along. You can check out our hands on video above to see the feature in action.
Update: A Microsoft employee has also confirmed this on Twitter.
Insiders can test out what Story Remix has to offer right now in the latest Insider Preview builds by heading to the Photos app. There, you will be able to create quick video clips from your library, and add transitions, text and music easily.
Delaying features appears to be an ongoing narrative with Windows 10 as of late. Microsoft demoed several features earlier this year, but two features that were planned for the Fall Creators Update; Timeline and Cloud Clipboard, have been pushed back to Redstone 4. Now Story Remix's 3D capabilities can be added to that list.
