Nero MediaHome
Create a slideshow using Nero Kwik Media.

The number of digital photos, video and music sitting on people’s hard drive doing nothing is gargantuan – Nero claims 94% of users do nothing whatsoever with the video they shoot, for example.

Nero MediaHome is a free tool designed to change all that. It manages your media collection, plus gives you options for viewing photos and video, listening to music and editing your photos. There’s a “Be Creative” section for quickly creating a music playlist or photo slideshow, plus uploading your media to various supported internet services, namely MyNero, YouTube, Facebook and Flickr.

The functionality offered by the program is relatively basic – there’s nothing here you won’t find in Google’s Picasa or Windows Live Photo Gallery for instance. It does at least offer a one-stop shop covering music as well as photos and videos, and its most recent update adds functionality previously restricted to a separate, paid-for module, namely automatic face tagging. However, other features - including the ability to quickly move content between devices - remain the preserve of costly add-on modules.

There is a definite improvement in performance too, although the hefty system requirements and download still make it less than svelte in appearance. However, while there are better alternatives out there, Nero MediaHome does at least feel like it's making a move in the right direction - one feature we like is support for ripping music CDs to the lossless FLAC format. Still some way to go, however.

Verdict:

A vast improvement on the initial release, although the need to purchase extra features within the program still rankles.

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."
