Grabilla 1.23
Capture and share desktop images and videos

Grabilla is a cross-platform tool (Windows, Mac, Android) for taking screen captures, recording desktop activity to animated GIFs or videos (with audio), annotating and sharing the results.

Launch the program on Windows and you're able to define a freehand rectangle to capture. A zoomed view shows the area around the mouse cursor, and its X and Y coordinates are also displayed, handy if you need precise positioning. Video, animated GIF, active window and full screen captures are also just a click away.

Once you've completed your capture, a simple editor displays various annotation tools: line, rectangle, arrow, text, and "redaction", a filled rectangle to obscure confidential data (names, addresses, account numbers, anything you don't want others to see).

The finished file may be saved locally, but Grabilla can also upload the capture to its own private server. There you're able to annotate it further, get links to share it, embed the screenshot or post it in forums, and there's even a one-click option to create a short URL and QR code.

Explore further and you'll find even more options. A web capture bookmarklet enables you to save web pages from Chrome or Firefox. Grabilla can be used to share other files, not just captures, within a fairly strict size limit (20MB, 300MB for videos). A History page keeps track of what you're doing, too, although to access this from anywhere you must sign in with a Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Yahoo or LinkedIn account. (If that doesn't appeal, no problem - most of the site's features work just fine as an anonymous user.)

Version 1.23 brings:
+ Scroll Capture – new feature for capturing screenshots in applications with window scroll.
! Video capture under Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 fix.
* Minor fixes for stability.
* Signed installer and executable files with certificate.

Verdict:

Grabilla's interface has some quirks, and video recording didn't work at all on one test PC. The plus points win out, though - configurability, online annotations, capture sharing features, cross-platform - and on balance the program gets a qualified thumbs up from us.

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
