Microsoft today announced the next major update for Windows 10: the Fall Creators Update at Build 2017. The company is introducing a couple of major new features with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, but one of the headline features is a new creative app: Windows Story Remix. Microsoft is currently working on a new app for Windows 10 that will introduce a new way of storytelling in Windows 10.
The new creative app from Microsoft was actually rumored almost one year ago, but it’s finally coming to Windows 10 later this year. Using the new app in Windows 10, users will be able to create memories out of their photos and videos. The app utilizes Microsoft’s Graph service to automatically create memories using your photos and videos. These memories can be shared as a video with cinematic transitions, a soundtrack, as well as a theme which is pretty neat. The app will likely come with a set of different sounds tracks and themes, but users might be able to create their own themes or use their own soundtrack for a memory.
The app has a lot of advanced features — for instance, you can select a star for your memory and it will automatically focus them in a video and follow them around in the edited memory. There’s even a memory editor that lets you edit the memory itself right within the app.
What’s really cool about this new app is the fact that users can create mixed reality content with their photos and videos. The app will let users insert 3D objects into their photos and videos, which they can then share in a memory. The new app will also utilize Microsoft’s newly announced Fluent Design System that was announced earlier at Build 2017 today.
