Format Factory 3.6.0
Convert video, audio and picture files from one format to another

Format Factory is a powerful file conversion tool with a surprisingly extensive feature list.

The program doesn't just convert video files from one format to another, for instance - it also comes with built-in presets that will, at a click, create videos for a host of mobile devices. These include the iPhone, iPod and iPad, Sony PSP and PS3, and hardware by companies including Archos, ASUS, Creative, Google, HTC, iRiver, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Philips, RIM BlackBerry, Samsung, Song Ericsson and more.

You also get strong audio file conversion options, including the ability to convert any music files to MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, MMF, AMR, M4A, M4R, OGG, MP2, WAV and WavPack.

Format Factory even works with images, batch converting whatever pictures you like to JPG, PNG, ICO, BMP, GIF, TIF, PCX or TGA files.

And the program can also rip DVD and CDs, create ISO images from your discs, join multiple video or audio files together, repair corrupted video and audio files, and more.

Version 3.6.0:

- Added file size comparison function after convertion
- Fixed bugs of previous version
 

Verdict:

Format Factory has one or two bugs, and crashed a couple of times during our tests. Most of the time it worked perfectly, though, and the sheer weight of its file conversion functionality means you really should give it a closer look

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
