DivXRepair 1.0.1
Automatically fix corrupt AVI videos. Sometimes.

DivXRepair is a compact portable tool which will try to repair AVI files with bad or missing frames. (A sign of this might be a video which freezes when you try to play it back, or briefly breaks up into coloured blocks of pixels.)

The program is fairly straightforward to use. Launch it; click "Add file" to add your troublesome AVI video (you can't drag and drop this onto the program, unfortunately); click "Repair files" to launch the repair, then wait to see what happens.

If all goes well then a text report will appear explaining what (if anything) the program has done. And if this involves a repair then there should be a new "fixed" version in the same folder as the source (if this was MyVideo.avi, that file would remain untouched, while the program creates a new version called MyVideo.REPAIR_OK.avi.)

In our tests the program's results are variable, though. Sometimes it did fix video corruption problems, and very well. But on other occasions the program would do nothing at all, and a couple of times it started to write a new version of the video but then hung up itself.

This isn't some magic solution, then, and you may well be better off using VirtualDub (on which the program is based) or some other tool to fix the video manually. But the program is at least easy to use, and does work sometimes, so there's no harm in having a copy on hand, just in case.

Verdict:

DivXRepair isn't the most reliable of video repair tools, but it's small, convenient and easy to use, so if you've an AVI which won't play properly then there's just a chance that the program might be able to help.

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
