On stage during its day two keynote address at Build 2017, Microsoft announced a new creativity-focused app: Windows Story Remix. Integrated with Groove Music and Remix 3D, Windows Store Remix helps Windows users collaboratively create stories out of their photos and videos.
Getting started with Story Remix is fairly easy. On stage, Microsoft demonstrated how Story Remix will automatically set up stories for you based on things like food pictures, or events like the Fourth of July. One of the cooler aspects is Story Remix's collaborative nature. Another demonstration on stage showed how Story Remix automatically created a video highlight reel sourced from video takes from all of the parents in a collaborative group that were at the game.
Cuts, filters, and music can also be completely changed automatically with a click. An included storyboard editor makes it simple to go in and manually customize the automatically generated video by adding or deleting clips, changing filters, or adding panning and zooming shots.
Once a Story is put together, you can easily add music sourced from Groove Music. 3D objects can also be inserted with a little help from the 3D Remix service, can add some frankly stunning 3D effects to each scene. And you won't have to leave the app to do either: Groove and Remix 3D content is accessible from within Story Remix itself.
Windows Story Remix will be available with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
