Lagarith Lossless Video Codec 1.3.27
Save any videos as often you like with no loss in quality

Lagarith is a lossless video codec which is able to save your videos without any loss in quality.

So what? If you're repeatedly editing a video, and saving it each time in a conventional codec - XviD, say - then your movie will lose a little quality each time. And while you can avoid this by saving the movie uncompressed, the files will be huge (a test 30 second 1280x720 uncompressed video required 2.32GB on our test PC).

Tell your editor to save files using the Lagarith codec, though, and these issues won't apply. Its lossless algorithm means you won't lose any quality, no matter how many times you save the file. And although your videos will be much larger than normal, they'll also be far smaller than their uncompressed cousins (our 2.32GB test video dropped to 419MB when saved using Lagarith).

Please note, videos created using Lagarith may not be supported by some media players. Applications like VLC, for instance, use their own built-in codecs and so won't be able to handle Lagarith-based files. This shouldn't really matter, as you'll only be saving files in Lagarith while they're being edited; use a more conventional codec when you're done and all will be well. But if you need to view a Lagarith-based movie in the meantime, open it in Windows Media Player and it should play correctly.

Verdict:

A fast and efficient lossless codec

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."
