CyberLink PowerDirector Ultimate
Transform ordinary home videos into polished, professional movies

CyberLink PowerDirector 14 is the latest edition of this popular, feature-packed video editor.

The program includes everything you need to create professional videos. There's a 100 track timeline to organise your movie; more than 500 effects, transitions and objects to apply; smart filters to stabilise shaky camera work, remove noise and fix lighting issues; powerful audio tools, excellent 3D support, and a huge selection of export options: DVDs, Blu-rays, a host of video formats, direct uploading to Facebook, YouTube, DailyMotion, or your own 20GB of CyberLink cloud storage (free for one year).

You also get a PowerDirector Mobile app for Windows and Android, great news if you don't want to wait until you get home to start editing.

That would be impressive enough all on its own, but PowerDirector 14 takes the franchise even further with some interesting new and enhanced features.

The template-based Express Projects module makes it quick and easy for anyone to produce quality videos.

New motion tracking support enables the accurate tracking of people and objects in video footage. Add a title, apply a special effect, maybe insert a PiP object and it'll automatically follow the target.

The Action Center is a single module where you can quickly stabilize shaky footage, correct fish-eye distortion, fix colour problems and apply slow motion, freeze and zoom effects.

There's a surprise bonus extra in the screen recorder, a simple way to record your desktop in up to 30fps, with audio.

Whatever you're doing, CyberLink's enhanced SVRT 4, TrueVelocity 5 Rendering Engine and extended hardware encoding support ensures the best possible performance - even if you're using new ability to render 120/ 240 fps video.

PowerDirector is available in multiple versions.

PowerDirector 14 Deluxe is the baseline edition. It includes the core features we've described here, but drops Motion Tracking, the Action Center, MultiCam and Transition designers, 120/ 240fps video production and CyberLink's cloud storage, along with some templates and effects.

PowerDirector 14 Ultra is the next step up, providing all the key features we've described here, and just dropping some of the effects and template packs.

But if you can afford it, PowerDirector Ultimate Suite has everything in PowerDirector Ultimate, adds the applications AudioDirector 6 and ColorDirector 4, includes CyberLink's Travel Pack 2 and NewBlue Video Essentials 5, and doubles your cloud storage to 40GB.

What's new in PowerDirector 14 build 2527?

- Adds support for 360 degree PiP rotation in a single keyframe.
- Enhances the program performance when generating shadow files.
- Enhances the compatibility of AVI and MOV video as a source video in Windows 10.
- Enhance the stability of Title/PiP/Particle designer.
- Enhance the stability of Desktop Capture.
- Enhances software performance when previewing video clips with speed adjustment applied.
- Fixes the issue that SVRT doesn’t work on MOV videos.
- Fixes the issues when upload video to Facebook and Youtube.
- Fixes the crash issue encountered when applying a color preset in the Action Camera Center.
- Fixes the crash issue encountered when using the Fish Eye effect to produce a 4:3 HD, Full-HD or 4K WMV video.

Verdict:

PowerDirector is a solid upgrade, particularly with its motion tracking and performance improvements, and it remains the best consumer video editor around.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
