oCam 21.0
A versatile screengrab and desktop capture tool

OCam is a very configurable capture tool which can both record individual images and videos of your desktop activities.

The program starts with a floating, resizable frame, and a simple toolbar. Position and size the frame to the area you'd like to record, and click Capture to record a single image, or Record to start capturing a desktop video (click the button again to stop). Clicking Open then opens the Explorer folder containing your captures, ready for your review.

While this sounds fairly standard, oCam is well implemented, and most of the features have considerable depth. You might first select a capture area by manually moving the selection frame, for example. But click the Resize button and you can also set the frame to a fixed size (640x480, 800x800, 1024x768 and so on), the full screen, or have it capture an application window.

OCam offers considerable control over its video output, too. You're able to set its target frames per second, keyframe rate, audio and video bitrate, export format (MPEG1/2/4, FLV, MOV, TS, VOB, XVID, OpenDIVX, AVI) and more. Captured images can be saved as JPG, BMP, GIF and PNG, and there are assorted other options to explore (hotkeys to launch recording, the audio device to capture, and more).

In our tests this all worked very well, too; the program popped up when we asked, placed minimal demands on our system, and reliably recorded both images and desktop video.

Beware: the installer will by default change your browser start page. If you don't want this, pay close attention during setup and clear the relevant checkbox when it appears.

Version 21.0:
 * Fixed a bug that program screen is recorded together, when the Aero feature is enabled.
 * When the recording screen, by supporting multiple cores, and improved recording performance significantly.
 * After closing About dialog, fixed a bug that does not move the focus to the main form.
 * Fixed that the Save As dialog box to go behind the window in the window 8.1.
 * Add advertising for the livelihood of developers.

Verdict:

OCam could benefit from a few small tweaks, like the ability to minimise it to your system tray. The core desktop video recorder is excellent, though, supremely configurable and easy to use - go grab a copy immediately.

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."
