Ashampoo Burning Studio 15
Quickly burn CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs and more

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 is a capable disc burning suite which also finds room for some unexpected and interesting features.

Burning regular data discs, for example, is a very simple and straightforward process. Click Burn Data > New Disc from the front-end menu, drag and drop your files onto the interface, and you can be burning your CD, DVD or Blu-ray disc in a couple of clicks.

But the program also create Autostart discs, which display interactive menus that appear when the disc is inserted. These can launch files or documents, send an email, link to a web page and more, and are a great way to properly present information to the recipient of your disc.

It's a similar story when you need to create video DVDs. Just like the competition, you're able to drag and drop in a few source videos and burn them to a PAL or NTSC video. But Burning Studio 15 can also trim, cut or split your videos; add soundtracks to a movie; create video slideshows from your images, with custom transitions and subtitles, and more.

Elsewhere, there are tools to create or rip audio CDs, burn, create or browse disc images (ASHDISC, CUE/ BIN, ISO, IMG); run simple file backups, copy discs, edit labels and covers, and the list goes on.

What's new? Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 now supports M-Discs, an optical disc technology which in theory could remain readable for 1,000+ years.

New audio features include support for recording from Windows audio devices (useful when adding a narration to a slideshow). There are optional sound effects for videos and slideshows, and the program now supports OPUS audio files.

An Autosave option automatically saves your projects at regular intervals, protecting you from disaster. (It's disabled by default, though - click Settings > General Options > Enable Autosave to turn it on.)

Practical improvements include 10% faster video encoding, and there are plenty of new skins, styles and templates to explore.

Please note, this build will by default install as a 10 day trial only, but you can extend this to 30 days if you register with Ashampoo. Click "Get extended free trial license now" after installation, if you're interested.

Verdict:

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 is fast and easy to use, yet still manages to include plenty of powerful features. If you're tired of the more bloated competition but don't want to compromise on functionality then Burning Studio 15 could be the ideal choice.

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."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
