Based on two promo videos leaked by Twitter's WalkingCat, a new update includes capabilities for 3D manipulation. "We've completely redesigned the app and it is packed with cool new features," a clip said. "The Paint you know and love is still there, but we've also added something amazing: The ability to create in 3D."
Using a touch-screen tablet, stylus pen, and "new and updated art tools," the on-screen artisan effortlessly draws a 3D clown fish. She then taps into the program's 3D models, 2D images, stickers, and community tools to create an underwater scene like something out of Finding Dory.
A second clip, "Paint With Paul," features touch-screen artist Paul Kercal demonstrating Smart Select and Make 3D—2D drawings in a 3D field.
As The Verge points out, these videos are not the first piece of evidence to suggest a Windows 10 version of paint: Screenshots leaked in May, tipping a more modern interface.
Redmond, meanwhile, last week sent out invitations for an Oct. 26 Windows 10 event in New York City. Widely expected to include a new Surface announcement and possibly Xbox news, Microsoft may also unveil its revamped Paint software.
The first version of Paint launched with the first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985. In the 31 years since, the graphics editor has been included with every version of Microsoft Windows.
The company did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.
