Microsoft just introduced an experimental video editing app, the Story Remix for the windows. The Story Remix app is essentially a powerful and revamped version of Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker. The Windows Movie Maker allowed users to edit their videos, but Microsoft didn’t care for it much back then. After years of wait, Microsoft has shown interest in this stuff (maybe due to increase in YouTubers and viners) and released the Story Remix app. You can use the Story Remix app to seamlessly merge photos, videos, music files and 3d models to create a unique and beautiful story. This app is targeted at both personal and professional use and is easy enough to be utilized by a casual person. You can look at the magic of this new app in the video below.
The app’s user interface is straightforward and easy to use. You can doodle over pictures and videos if you have a tablet or a touch screen enabled Laptop or PC. One of the best features of this app is its integration with your mobile phones; you can shoot a video on your mobile and edit it on your PC or Laptop later on. The video suggests that it will also work extensively with Paint 3D and Remix 3D. This means that you will be able to create, edit and use various 3d models created by the community into your video project.
The app uses Groove music to supply music and soundtrack to your slideshows and videos.The Story Remix app can quickly set the slideshow timings to match the beats of the song, this is a cool feature and will save you hours of video editing. Even then if you don’t like the story you have created, click the REMIX button, and the app will re-edit the story for you.
Microsoft has stated that this app will be integrated into later versions of Windows 10 and will be a part of the default photos app. This means that you won’t have to install any other software for it. Currently, this app is in beta stage and is available to users using the latest Windows 10 build 16193. This build is for the users who have participated in the Windows Insider program. If you aren’t a part of the Insider program, then you have to wait for a proper release of this app.
Video editing has never been this easy, and if this app lives up to the expectations, then it will be great. If you have used this new app then give your opinions and thoughts about the app in the comments section below
