Free Video Dub 2.0.22.295
Trim unwanted sections of videos without losing quality

Free Video Dub is a simple tool which can remove the unwanted sections of videos, without needing to re-encode the file and reduce its quality.

The program has a very basic interface, with no menus - just about everything you need is presented on a single toolbar. Essentially you must open a video (MPG, MOV, MP4, FLV, AVI and other formats are supported), select the left and right trim points of any given section, then press "X" to delete it. Repeat that for as many times as you like, click "Save Video" when you're done, and Free Video Dub saves the trimmed version of the file.

It's not always as simple as that, of course. The first problem appeared when we tried using the toolbar buttons to step frame by frame through our test video; the program actually moved in half second increments, instead. Would the built-in scene detection tool help? No, not really: Free Video Dub locked up when we first used it, and when it did work we still only saw the same half second resolution.

Dragging the selection point with the mouse did give us a little more control, though. We were able to use the program to successfully trim MPG, MOV, FLV, MP4 and WEBM videos, and the saved files all worked as expected (our unwanted sections were trimmed, but otherwise the videos played correctly).

Please note, the program will by default install a toolbar & other "extras" along with its own code. If you're not interested, pay attention during setup, choose the "Custom Installation" option, and clear the relevant checkboxes.

Verdict:

It really needs the ability to step through a video frame by frame, but if you can live with more approximate cuts then Free Video Dub is an easy way to get the job done

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
