Blender Portable
A complex, but very powerful 3D graphics tool

Blender is a powerful, professional, and free open source 3D graphics tool that can be used to produce everything from single 2D stills, to full 3D movies in broadcast and cinema quality, and even interactive 3D content for stand-alone playback.

The program comes packed with essential features. A comprehensive modeller supports a range of 3D object types, and fast skeleton creation and automatic skinning help you get started; an in-built raytracer complete with halo, lens flares and fog effects delivers top quality rendering; animation tools support full armature deformation with forward/ inverse kinematics, adding automated walkcycles along paths for easy movement planning; and you get top quality diffuse and specular shaders, accurate physics and particle modelling, even collision detection to aid with real-time 3D game creation.

Once you've finished, your project can be exported for viewing as 2D images, videos (AVI or MOV, say), or a host of 3D formats for possible reworking elsewhere: 3D Studio, AC3D, DXF, DirectX, Lightwave, MD2, Motion Capture, TrueSpace, VRML, and more.

And if you'd like to get a feel for what the program can do, then try watching Blender-created movies like Sintel and Big Buck Bunny - the results can be very impressive.

Note that this is the portable version of Blender.

Verdict:

A complex, but very powerful 3D graphics tool with many interesting applications

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."
