Microsoft debuts Windows Story Remix to edit and organize your photos and videosAt Microsoft Build, the company shows a new photo-and-video software tool to better edit, organize and store photos and videos.
Story Remix is fun, and it's a collaborative way to create stories that you will love. Let's go check it out. So I'm starting here on the Explore tab. This is where I can browse my entire collection of photos and videos. Thanks to Windows and the power of AI and Deep Learning, Story Remix can recognize people and objects in photos and videos. So now I wanna use my collection to create my own story. So I'm gonna go to the Create tab. So here we have a video that's Story Remix has already made for me. And what's really unique about it is the footage was captured collaboratively by all the parents who were at that game. I just set up a story and I invited them to join. And then they used Story Remix on their phones to contribute all of their footage We've added pen and ink support to Story Remix. You might have seen [UNKNOWN] on photos and videos before, but this is new. I'm going to anchor this note to Gina. Hey now, check out how the note follows her as she moves down the field and evades this defender. [APPLAUSE] Since Story Remix has already made a montage for me, I'm gonna check that out first. [MUSIC] But I want this video to be all about Gina, my MVP. So to do that I just touch her thumbnail and Story Remix will redo the entire video with her as the star. [MUSIC] Lets try an even different vibe because StoryBase can do that too. It can give you a whole new look and feel for your video by just touching the remix button. StoryRemix is going to change the cuts, the filters, the music. [BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] This is brand new, and this is a storyboard interface where I can easily add or edit or remove clips And then if I wanna change up the song, I can do that thanks to Groove. Just open it up, think about what theme I'm looking for. I think I want cinematic. So let's try film. [MUSIC] Okay, let's amp up the intensity on that one. [MUSIC] Okay now I'm gonna select that one and watch how story remix re does all the cuts to match the beats of the song. This saves me a ton of time, cuz it means I don't have to re edit my video every time I change the song. So I came here to look for inspiration for that final click. So there's that fireball that caught my eye and I do have an idea of what I want to do with this fireball. So let me move the video to right where she kicks her soccer ball. Okay, now let's put the fireball in the project, move it over to the soccer ball. And then I'm gonna anchor it to the object. Let's see how this looks. [MUSIC] Aha. Here's an explosion that'll do. Lets place it in my project. Move it into the goal. Lets watch it. [MUSIC] [SOUND] [MUSIC] [APPLAUSE]
