TEncoder
A fast and powerful video conversion tool

TEncoder is a powerful tool for downloading, ripping and converting video and audio files from one format to another.

The main TEncoder screen is complex and cluttered, but once you've figured out a few basic details it's actually quite easy to use. Click the "Add" button to add individual files or an entire folder of files (or "Add Link" to download files from popular media sharing sites); select a profile to define the appropriate settings for your device (there are more 800 to choose from); click "Encode", and wait as your files are converted.

You shouldn't wait long, either, as TEncoder uses multiple threads by default. On our test system it was able to convert 8 videos simultaneously, helping deliver notably better performance than most of the competition. (Of course this also means your PC won't have the processor power to do much else, but if that's a problem you can tell TEncoder to grab less cores for itself.)

Perhaps the real benefit of TEncoder is the fine control you get over your conversions, though. This starts with the ability to set all the basics: codecs, bitrates, video resolution, frame rates, aspect ratio and output format (AVI, MPEG, MP4, MOV, MKV, FLV, WMV, WEBM, 3GP). A Preview window helps you to select the part of a video which you'd like to convert. You can process your downloads in many ways - deinterlace, crop, rotate, adjust volume, add a watermark, merge images and audio files to a video, convert a video to an animated GIF - and a Preview function gives a feel for the results without having to convert all your files.

Experts will also appreciate some of the more low-level controls, including the option to choose your preferred encoding engine (FFmpeg or MEncoder), and provide custom video and audio options.

Verdict:

The interface is cluttered, but spend a few minutes learning the basics and TEncoder turns out to be a speedy, straightforward and extremely configurable conversion tool

A big thumbs up for this new v4.5.2 because they removed all of the obnoxious ads and 3rd party offers that were previously bundled with the installer. Now it's truly an application that deserves serious consideration.

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
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
