Adobe Voice 1.0
Build your story using photos, icons and other page elements.

Traditionally, putting together a video can be a time-consuming, difficult process, particularly if you’re new to the process. Adobe Voice aims to change all that with its slideshow-based approach to creating a movie using animated images, icons and your own voice.

Start by tapping Create a New Story. Give it a title then choose a structure (or keep it loose, entirely up to you). Then it’s simply a case of building the slides – or "pages" as Adobe Voice calls them in keeping with its story narrative – one at a time.

Skip the tutorial to immediately access the full gamut of features. First, pick an overall theme and your choice of background music to match your story. Once done, record the first line or two of your script. Listen back, then either re-record or move on to the next stage. Start by tapping Layout to choose one of five types of layout, basically giving you a choice of placing one or two elements on the page.

Elements consist of text, icons or images – Adobe Voice lets you search from thousands of freely available images online, or you can download photos from your own collections, either on your iPad or via supported online services (Adobe’s own Creative Cloud, Facebook and Dropbox are all supported in this initial release).

Once selected, Adobe will automatically choose background music and animate the page, allowing you to preview it before moving on to the next one. Once your story’s complete, you can then share it – either publicly for other Adobe Voice users to see, or privately so only those with an actual link to the slideshow (which can be shared via Facebook, Twitter and Messages as well as email).

The whole process is intuitive and simple to follow – and mercifully quick too. The hardest part of the process is choosing a topic and then working out what to say. The app description mentions the availability of in-app purchases – at time of writing, none were available, but so long as this core functionality remains free, Adobe Voice is a great proposition for someone wishing to create slideshow-based video stories.

Verdict:

A great way of quickly transforming scripted audio into a full-on multimedia video for sharing with others.

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
