Vidiot
A simple(-ish) home video editor

Vidiot is a non-linear video editor for basic home video editing.

Add a few clips and you're able to drag and drop, perhaps copy and paste them into order, maybe add a few simple fades.

You're able to zoom in, preview individual clips and trim them via the mouse or keyboard.

A single panel gives access to most of your effects and status information: speed, opacity, video cropping, rotation, scaling, positions, volume and keyframes.

There's limited support for titles, though nothing like the wizards or templates of more advanced editors (all you can do is overlay transparent images).

When you're finished, Vidiot renders the final video with your choice of codec and bit rate.

A less-than-intuitive interface means this isn't always straightforward, but built-in help is on hand if you need it.

Verdict:

Vidiot is a basic video editor with only limited options, but once you've mastered the interface it's relatively simple and straightforward to use.

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."
