Windows Movie Maker is revived in Story Remix, an app announced today for Windows 10 users at Microsoft's Build conference. It allows users to easily edit together photos and videos from their mobile and desktop collections into movie clips.

Microsoft's presentation emphasizes its ease-of-use and collaboration features, but the attention-getter is the ability to easily drop in special effects. Fireballs, 3D-figures and text can be added to a scene and anchored to objects for a realistic-looking cinematic effect. 

For those less interested in customizing their video, Story Remix can automatically edit photos and videos into a movie with basic input from the user, presenting the option to 'remix' the whole thing if you don't like what you get. The demonstrations certainly look clever – we'll be interested to see how end users take to the final product.
