Dear Friend,

 

Weekly Tip – How to Resize Video Surgeon

This Video Surgeon weekly tip is about resizing Video Surgeon.  There are two situations to be addressed.  The first is with small screens.  Some older machines have lower resolution monitors and some of the newer, smaller, inexpensive notebooks have smaller screens. In these situations you may need to resize the Video Surgeon interface to its minimum size. Video Surgeon can be resized to a minimum size of 1000 x 800 with all of the controls showing and if the top and bottom areas are collapsed then it can be resized to 1000 x 600.  

The way to resize is the same in both Windows and Mac.  Grab the lower, right hand side of the GUI with the 3 diagonal lines and push or pull to resize.  In Windows if you can’t get to this lower right hand corner, you may need to temporarily turn off your Quick Launch toolbar or use it in the auto-hide feature.  I have included a snapshot corner with the 3 lines on it to the right.

For larger screens, you may want to take advantage of the screen to see a bigger image.  You can do this in several ways.  The first is to use the full size icon in the upper right hand corner of the user interface to maximize.  This is next to the minimize and close buttons.  In addition, you have the option to COLLAPSE the top and/or bottom menu areas by using the collapse button found on the far right hand size of the GUI.  This button is a small black square with a gray arrow inside of it.

The only downside to maximizing the video size may be its quality.  If you are dealing with a smaller or older video, resizing it may result in lower quality, especially if you have a very large screen.  Video Surgeon preserves the quality of whatever file you open, so if the quality is lessened when you view it in Video Surgeon it will be do to the fact you are resizing to a larger frame size than the original video.

Video Surgeon Updates (Both Mac and Win)

We have made many changes over the past few months to correct bugs and modify other functions for user convenience.  If you don’t have the latest version which is 2.0.0.797 you might consider downloading and installing it.   You can always find the most recent builds in the Downloads section of the Help Desk. 

Video Surgeon Unique Uses Program

We are always looking to understand how our customers are using Video Surgeon and in what fields.  Our most common user would be a musician who uses Video Surgeon to slow down and zoom in to better see a video of a lesson or a musician playing on a song.   However, we know there are many other uses and we would like to catalog a list of these uses.  You can win a free upgrade to Version 3 when it is released by submitting to us an explanation of how you are using Video Surgeon.  If this use is new and something we haven’t encountered before, we’ll give you a free upgrade.  This determination will be at our sole discretion.  To qualify you need to send us a written description of what you are doing, along with your name and an example video where on which you have used Video Surgeon. If you are interested please send your information to info@videosurgeon.net

SlideTrax: Quick, Simple, Easy way to make YouTube Vids

YouTube and other video sharing sites are some of the most popular sites on the World Wide Web. Unfortunately for music lovers and musicians, these sites don’t accept audio files. For audio or music files to be uploaded to YouTube (or Facebook) you must first make a video that incorporates the audio.

There are many software programs available for creating videos, some are quite sophisticated, expensive, and difficult to learn. Others are less expensive and simpler, but still require a modest learning curve.

But….. creating a video using SlideTrax is a dunk shot!  You can’t miss!

SlideTrax is an inexpensive software program that is very simple to use. It effortlessly allows you to create a video using an audio file. In fact, it is so easy to use that it almost completely circumvents any learning curve. All you need to be able to do is Drag and Drop an audio file, image (picture) file, and perhaps include some optional text that you’d like to appear.

Voila!
You’re done!
Your video has been created and is now ready for sharing!

If you’re not a musician that’s okay.  There are a ton of uses for SlideTrax outside of the music field.  Regardless of whether you have a library of songs you’d like to share or a: speech, presentation, audio transcript, conversation, sound effects, oral histories, the sounds of nature, wildlife recordings, etc. , you can create a SlideTrak for any and all these.

Grab our special introductory offer of $19.95, a 33% discount off our regular price and get started today using the link below:

  p.s.  Here is an copy of an email we recently received from one of our customers.  It demonstrates the type of diversity of use we are looking to catalog in the “Unique Uses” program mentioned above.

I practice Tai Chi very seriously and, with your software, I have been able to improve my form. There are many intricate moves within each form that I was not able to detect with other software. For me your software has been a good investment.

You ask for suggestions for future software improvements.  I have one. I am using videos that are not HD and if you could incorporate math coprocessors to upgrade the video that is imported this could add even more to the detail that could be extracted from the video. I know this would be a big undertaking, and in the future HD video will in many instances become more common, but I know that many people would like to  view older videos in a higher resolution. Once again thanks for a great product.

Dear Friend,

 

Weekly Video Tip – Using DVD Footage

With the launch behind us, let’s get down to business with some practical tips for the use of Video Surgeon.  Watch for these in our weekly video tips segment of this newsletter.

Video Surgeon is not your average video playback program.  In order to allow you to change key or tempo we have to split the audio from the video, process each separately, and then put it back together.   Moreover, to allow you to zoom we process the video in such a way as to preserve the quality of the original video source. All of this means that it can take some time to open large files in Video Surgeon

The .vob files found on DVDs can be as large as 1Gb in size.  These file can often take 5-10 minutes to rip from the DVD and then another 5-10 minutes to import and open in Video Surgeon.  On older computers it may even take longer.

We have assembled a series of tips and suggestions to assist you with your use of video from DVD’s. We will cover these tips in the next several newsletters in this Weekly Tip’s section.  The first of these on ripping vs. opening a DVD (.vob) file.

Video Surgeon Launch Has Ended

I want to thank you for your interest and purchase in Video Surgeon. Both the Windows and Mac version launches are now complete.

I want to apologize if you received multiple emails about the launch. There is a method to the madness as they say.  Only about 10-15% of all emails are ever opened.  This means we need to send an email 6-7 times to ensure that everyone sees it.  And even after sending many emails we’ll hear from people over the next days and weeks telling us they never received a notification of the launch.

If you missed the launch promotions, the product is available for reduced price on our website.  You can take a look here:  http://shopping.videosurgeon.net/v2/order/

Video Surgeon Weekly Tip – Controlling Video Quality

We are beginning to get questions about video quality. Video Surgeon maintains video quality, so essentially whatever you put in is what you get out.  That means you need to strive to find high quality videos to use in Video surgeon. This week’s video tips provides some practical suggestions on how to do this.

  p.s.  It’s not what we think of Video Surgeon that is important but rather, what you think.  Here are a few comments that have come in that will give you a flavor of what customers are telling us.

VS 2 is the bomb!  As you may recall, I’ve had difficulty with the sniffer on previous versions, in particular with YouTube music videos.  VS 2 has solved all my problems and then some with the new YouTube sniffer and all the added features.  I especially like the vastly improved option to slow down music passages.  Keep up the good work!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Video Surgeon is an AWESOME product!  I own the first version, and everything that I thought should be better in the first version was made MUCH BETTER in the second version.  It really has blown me away.  I will definitely be purchasing version 2 in the (hopefully near) future, but right now money is tight and some household projects must take precedence (I hope I spelled that right).

I look forward to doing business with you again.  And again, GREAT JOB on version 2!

I love the program.  It is an incredible help to learning guitar.  Thanks.  I own Song Surgeon also.  Both programs are GREAT!

MIKE
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I use video surgeon for dance moves (tango) and Tai Chi.  I like the slow down, loop and freeze frame features.  One thing that I would like to see as an improvement would be to have the capability to export the sound track alone  That makes the music portable, useable in any mp3 player, for dance practice away from a PC.

Video Surgeon Weekly Video Tip

This week’s video tip is on the use of the Freeze-frame buttons in the center of the GUI just below the video viewing area.  Those to the left of the center FF button allow you to scroll in reverse and those to the right – forward. Using these buttons you can scroll thru the video down to a frame by frame review.  This allows you to find Exactly what you are looking for, studying on the screen, zoom in to blow it up, and if you’d like to even print it.  These video describes the use of these buttons in more detail

 Video Surgeon Launch Specials for Everyone

Shortly after the launch of the Windows version concluded, we increased the price of Video Surgeon.  However, in response to multiple inquiries from Mac users I promised to sell the Mac version for the same price as the Windows version was sold at launch.  That price is $84.95. 

The current retail price for the product is $119, so I’d encourage you to buy Video Surgeon now if you are interested because once this launch period ends the product will revert to its full retail price- and you’ll pay a lot more for it ($34 savings).

As we normally do when we launch a new product, the special pricing we offer applies to all version and models. That means if you are a Windows users and have been waiting for a sale  before buying, now is a great time to buy.  I don’t expect to repeat this price again until perhaps Christmas of 2014.

VS 2 is the bomb!  As you may recall, I’ve had difficulty with the sniffer on previous versions, in particular with YouTube music videos.  VS 2 has solved all my problems and then some with the new YouTube sniffer and all the added features.  I especially like the vastly improved option to slow down music passages.  Keep up the good work!

Dear Friend,

 

Weekly Tip – Print to File

There is no video for this weekly video tip, because I don’t have the new version yet with this feature built into it.  But, when the Mac version is released, along with its corresponding updated Windows version, both with have the Print to File feature incorporated into it.  Instead of printing to paper, this feature will allow you to print to file, thereby allowing you to save a video frame or frames as graphic (jpg) files.


 

Beta Testing on Mac Version is Completed

The beta testing results for Mac are in. As of this writing I have reviewed about half of them and don’t see any major issues. This means we should be on schedule for a release and launch of the Mac version no later than mid-February.

If you’d like to be notified as soon as Video Surgeon for Mac is available, please sign up for our launch notification list by sending an email to vs4mac@getresponse.com

As promised, Mac users will be able to buy the Mac version at the same price for which we offered the Windows version when it was first launched.  That price was and will be $84.95.

There are also a number of you that have asked about running Video Surgeon on both Mac and Windows machines.  To accommodate this we will be adding a DUAL OS license option for $14.95.

This option will allow purchasers to register and activate Video Surgeon on a maximum of three machines – both Mac and Windows.  To state the obvious, this is not a stand alone option.  In order to purchase this you must buy or already own Video Surgeon Version 2.

The new Mac version will require an Intel chipset.  It will run on Mac OSx 10.6.8 – thru 10.9.x

If you have an older Mac with a less powerful CPU or smaller amounts of memory, though the program will open and run, I would suggest you take the trial version for a test drive before buying.

Video Surgeon Tester Comments

You guys have a great product.  I actually find VS to be quite intuitive and user friendly, though I did watch the tutorial and other youtube videos on the software.  Two things I am looking for are (a) the ability to take a fairly low quality video and enhance it to make a crisper, cleaner video (the clearest example I can think of is the enhanced video of the battleship Arizona during the Pearl Harbor attack which was originally shot with relatively low quality but was rendered with high definition recently-  sorry, I couldn’t find the recent link) and (b) the ability to take a crisp freeze frame and export the frame as a JPEG or picture image without having to resort to a third party solution like the snipping tool, etc.
