CyberLink MediaSuite 9 Centra
Play, organise, edit, convert and share your media files with this value-for-money suite

CyberLink MediaSuite 9 Centra is a suite of applications to play, watch, edit and share your favourite media files.

PowerDVD 10 Standard, the suite's media player, supports playback for all the major video formats (and most of the minor ones, too) and DVDs. And if you're enjoying a film then you can now share the experience, making comments as you watch, then sharing them in real time on Facebook and Twitter.

PowerDirector 8 Deluxe will then take care of your video editing needs. Better than ever, too, thanks to the expanded 16 video timelines (up from 2), and a particle effects designer that allows you to create spectacular special effects.

Power2Go 7, the suite's disc burning package, includes useful extras like an ISO viewer and the ability to create interactive slideshows. Its support for the new 128GB BDXL format allows very easy archiving, too. Although PowerBackup provides scheduled backups, if you need them.

And the list goes on. PowerProducer 5.0 Standard will share your videos on DVD; MediaShow 5.0 Deluxe manages your photo collection, with speedy face tagging, instant photo fixing options and more; PhotoNow provides more advanced image editing options, and there are additional tools to edit audio files, create ring tones, design disc labels, build professional slideshows, and a whole lot more.

Centra is the "value" edition of Media Suite, and so it does have some limitations. In particular it can't play or create Blu-ray discs or 3D videos, and isn't able to convert media files.

If this is a problem, though, you can always try one of the other editions.

Media Suite 9 Pro is the next step up. It comes with MediaEspresso, which will quickly convert media files into your chosen format, and create play 3D videos and create Blu-ray discs.

And Media Suite 9 Ultra is the full-strength suite: it has all the features of Media Suite Pro 9, and can play Blu-ray discs, too - even Blu-ray 3D movies.

Verdict:

There's no Blu-ray support, and we miss MediaEspresso, but the suite is still packed with powerful features - and it's great value for money

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
