Microsoft showcases the power of Paint 3D in new trailer

Microsoft has released a trailer for its upcoming extension to Windows 10's creative tools, Paint 3D.

Included as a part of the Windows 10 Creators Update, the trailer shows how the updated program can be used to produce seamless 3D creations. With an emphasis on its intuitive interface and accessibility, the video shows a range of people of differing skills sets using Paint 3D.

While the app doesn't include a huge number of advanced tools, the program is set to put 3D creative tools in the hands of average users. Paint 3D will be available next year, included for free alongside the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.

  • Wow keep it coming Microsoft you guys really know how to blow peoples mind. Eat your heart out Apple & Google fan boys.
  • I wish they would innovate with flash animation of Adobe and make doing 3d moving in real life.
    Then when things collide, we'll be able to make animation with 3d and move it to real world by VR. :D
  • I thought of it as a small event...but it went out to be a pretty big one...really proud of the surface line and windows 10 integrations
  • MS Paint continues to be my go-to for quick draw explanations to those who don't understand words.  A 3D capable version of Paint is just great thinking.  You have to expose people to the idea that these "things" (3D) are normal. 3D is here. 3D is now.  This way, people will start looking at it as "necessary" in a feature set.  Good positioning Microsoft.  I may no longer be a Lumia owner, but I am still a hard core Microsoft user and can't wait to get all of these new goodies in my hands.
