Unreal Engine 4 is the new version of one of the most widely used game engines out there; the Unreal Engine. It features new interface, new material pipeline of physically-based shaders, Blueprint visual scripting, DirectX11 rendering, improved lighting and the list can go on. But you may want to check out all the features yourself.

Unreal Engine 4 is now offered as a free download. It did require a monthly subscription fee but that is no longer the case.

Unreal Engine is very versatile and has been used to create many triple A games such as: Batman: Arkham City, Gears of War Series, Borderlands Series.

CRYENGINE 3

www.Cryengine.com

CryEngine 3 has been used in games such as Crysis 2, Crysis 3 and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. Just like Unreal Engine 3, CryEngine 3 is the complete toolset for game development. CryEngine 3 has been used as a benchmark for visual graphics for some time and it continues to push the limit what games are capable of. One of CryEngine’s features is its ability to produce huge beautiful, highly detailed landscapes.

CryEngine 3 SDK is now on Steam and requires a monthly subscription service. You can also choose a full license but for independent game developers and hobbyist, Steam subscription will be enough.

You can still find a free version of CryEngine 3 SDK somewhere online. I believe the last free version was 3.5.8 but it is no longer being updated by Crytek. For new updates and new version of the game engine you will need to sign up for subscription service.

Free version of CryEngine 3 SDK is still available with all the necessary tools to start creation your own worlds or your own game.

Each game has a huge community behind it with new content always being released. I love using Source Engine because of its games. You can get your hands on the engine by downloading any of Valve’s released games on Steam. If you are interested in licensing Source for commercial project go here.

Eventually Source is going to get an update to Source 2 with unconfirmed and possible releases of Half-Life 3 and Left4Dead 3.

How to become designer without photoshop

How to become designer without photoshop

One of the toughest parts of running a Facebook page or any social account is creating high-quality graphics.

I’m not a designer myself.

Sure, I have an old version of Photoshop on my computer — but I can never figure out how to use it.

And I get frustrated with it in minutes!

So I either create really crappy graphics or I just give up.

That’s why I’m excited today to tell you about a new app I’ve been beta testing.

The app is called Canva — and it will improve your ability to create great graphics & make yourFacebook business page look a lot more professional.

>> Click to Tweet <<

Simply put, Canva rocks!

How to Create Stunning Social Media Graphics WITHOUT Photoshop

What is Canva?

Canva was created by Melanie Perkins, Cliff Obrecht & Cameron Adams.

Melanie & Cliff had already built a website called Fusion Books that allowed schools to create yearbooks online.

Knowing how difficult it is to create high-quality content for social media, the team wanted to develop an app to end all Photoshop headaches.

Canva was born.

What Does Canva Do?

Canva makes graphic design easy for anyone — including graphic-phobes like myself!

Here are 3 big advantages:

  • Canva is great for creating social media graphics — especially for Facebook
  • Canva is cloud based — no software to download
  • Canva is free!

You may recall in my recent blog post — 4 Facebook Posts Guaranteed to Get More Likes and Comments — I used custom images to showcase a few tips.

I actually used Canva to create those images — and it only took a few minutes!

So I’m now using Canva to create:

  • images for blog posts
  • cover photos for small business Facebook pages
  • images to showcase my products (as shown below)

social-media-graphics

social-media-graphics

(the phone numbers were intentionally blurred for this blog post)

If I had tried using Photoshop to make these images, I never would have finished!

The cover photo image above — which will help boost my branding on Facebook — took a entire 2 minutes to create.

And most of that time was for uploading photos!

How Do I Use Canva?

Here’s a SlideShare presentation I created to show you just how easy Canva is to use:

Photoshop is Dead to me! Use this new FREE app to create stunning social media graphics!from Scott Ayres

 

As you can see, using Canva is pretty simple.

And remember: Canva lets you quickly create amazing graphics for your social media accounts, web pages & even print!

In addition to features shown in the presentation, you can also use Canva to create:

  • Documents
  • Presentations
  • Blog Graphics
  • Facebook Cover Photos
  • Social Media Graphics
  • Cards
  • Photo Collages
  • Posters
  • Invitations
  • Business Cards

Though Canva is free to use — some special features do require a fee.

Paid elements come into play when you use an image created by Canva or by a designer who has added their work to the website.

The paid images mostly cost $1 — which is cheaper than any stock photo site I have found.

Remember, high-quality images are a crucial part of any Facebook marketing strategy.

Canva for Designers

And Canva isn’t just for beginners like me.

The website has partnered with some of the world’s best graphic designers, illustrators & photographers to provide millions of images & designs for you to choose from.

In their words:

We aim to be the best layout, mockup & collaboration tool you’ve ever used. Enjoy seamless collaboration with your clients & team without the need for endless back-and-forth emails.

As a designer, you can use Canva to create images for your clients & share those images so clients can quickly see & edit your work.

For those of you creating graphics for social media, imagine making a cover photo for a client & instead of emailing them & waiting for a response — you simply share the mockup so they can see it online.

You can also create images & designs for purchase by other Canva users. And you receive a royalty whenever someone uses one of your designs!

Get VIP Access to Canva!

Overall, I think Canva is one of the best apps to hit the market in a very long time — especially when it comes to graphics.

I can quickly upload any image from my computer or sync my Facebook images with Canva to make it even easier to use!
