Video Surgeon 3 product box

If you use video in your training, learning, teaching, lessons, or instruction Video Surgeon is a must-have tool. Why? Because it will help you learn faster, become a better player, save you time, and give you a competitive edge.

And these benefits span most fields of endeavor because the learning process is the same. Video Surgeon’s ability to slow a video down, zoom in, and isolate a segment to play it repetitively gives you the ability to much more easily and quickly see, analyze, evaluate and understand what is going on – which thereafter allows you to modify, fix or improve what you are doing.

Whether you play golf or tennis, whether you play the guitar or some other instrument, whether you play soccer, football, baseball, whether you ski, skateboard, or dance, or participate in any of 1000 other endeavors, Video Surgeon can also benefit you with whatever you are doing or learning or teaching.

Video Surgeon Benefits

Video Surgeon is loaded with valuable features but, its benefits are what should really interest you. They are the bottom line results of what using the product can do for you. They are:

Makes You Better
Makes You Better

Regardless of the endeavor in which you participate, Video Surgeon will make you better by allowing you to analyze what you are doing, or what someone at the top of their game is doing. This analysis helps you see strengths and weakness, areas the need improvement or changes that need to be made – and then once these are understood you can go to work on them.

Learn Faster
Learn Faster

The ability to isolate a segment of video, slow it down and zoom-in, and then play it repeatedly allows you to much more quickly see and understand what is going on. Better understanding what needs to be fixed or changed means that you will learn faster.

Competitive Edge
Competitive Edge

Whether you are a weekend warrior who competes with his buddies in a round of golf, a guitar player auditioning for a band, or an athlete the plays a competitive sport, Video Surgeon can give you a leg up on your competition. Being able to learn more quickly and play better is in itself a big competitive edge but, you can also use Video Surgeon to analyze your competition – and to identify their strengths and weaknesses.

Save Time
Save Time

We live in a fast paced world, where there is never enough time for all that we try to cram into our busy lives. We realize that to improve or get better at any activity we need to practice. However, the practice time required to get better or to become proficient at something is often more time than we have. Video Surgeon allows you to maximize learning while minimizing practice time because it allows you to more easily and accurately see, analyze and understand what is going on.

Slow the video down to 5% of the original speed and easily analyze each step in the video with much more detail and focus!

Video Surgeon Looping

Video Surgeon Zooming

The ability to zoom-in within a video is very powerful. When you can apply zooming, slow motion, and looping - all at the same time - you have a very powerful tool to help you analyze and extract every last bit of useful information from your video.

Video Surgeon Speed Trainer
Speed Trainer

Video Surgeon 3 Testimonials G. Hamlin
A friend of mine was was pestering me to try Video Surgeon but for the longest time I just didn't take the time to do so. Finally, last week I installed the program and all I can say is Wow....what a killer tool. I can't believe I took so long to look at it. Every guitar player that utilizes video in their training, lessons or learning should give it a try - it's that valuable of a tool.
After completing my review of Video Surgeon, I now highly recommend it to all of my students and my 27,000 + customers who have purchased my online courses.

Video Surgeon 3 Testimonials J. Barker
What a great learning aid! The software is very intuitive and, after downloading it, and based on Griff's short demo, I was up and running within a few short minutes. I have been playing Walk Don't Run by the Ventures for years and knew that I didn't have one small piece of it just quite right. I found a good YouTube video - imported it into Video Surgeon, slowed it down, zoomed in on the player's fret hand and had it nailed within a couple of minutes.
I am now going through your tutorials so that I don't miss out on any of its capabilities. Your lessons are really well done. Just the right length and with a level of detail that should enable anyone to get the most out of the software.
A FIVE STAR rating for your software and tutorials.

Video Surgeon 3 Testimonials F. Harrison
I have been using VS3 to transcribe a guitar song for which there are no tabs available for. It took me a little bit to get acquainted with the different interface compared to VS2 . The main improvement that has helped me in transcribing the song is the zoom feature. Being able to isolate and zoom in on the left hand of the guitarist has really been extremely helpful. Much better than the zoom of VS2 for certain. That feature, for me, is the most important one in the program. The sound quality of the slower speed is very good as well and also very helpful. I also use the looping feature and export those loops and place them on my phone for quick reference ! You did a great job on reworking the VS program!!

F. Harrison, USA

P.S. I may also use the program in my other interest of horses ie: horse racing, horse jumping, dressage shows. Sometimes slowing down and zooming in can make for an interesting study of those sports.

Video Surgeon 3 Testimonials T. Conaghan
This is a great product for guitar players who are trying to learn from video files. You can loop a portion of the video that you are practicing. You can also slow down the speed of the video to practice and the pitch of the video remains the same even at the slower speed. You can learn much faster using this product. I highly recommend it.

4. Is this purchase of Video Surgeon an annual cost or a 1-time purchase?

Video Surgeon 3 is a 1-time purchase. You buy it and you own it for the life of the Version. All intra-version updates are provided at no cost. At some future point in time, if a new major version is released, i.e. Version 4, you would need to purchase this version if you wanted to update. All previous Video Surgeon customers recieve a previous customer discount when they update.

5. Why doesn’t Video Surgeon 3 contain a download or sniffer module like previous versions ?

Back in June of 2016 as we were developing the newest version of Song Surgeon, we began to tell our customers that we would be discontinuing the downloading modules in all of our major products due to concerns over liability and how that would impact our business.

In the past, Google among others, have sued to block some products that perform downloading functions. However, it’s important to remember that many uses of copyrighted material are considered legal under the fair use doctrine to U.S. copyright law. The fair use doctrine makes exceptions for non-infringing purposes like news reporting, research, education — or just for laughs. Consider YouTube’s first big legal copyright challenge, a 2007 video of a baby dancing to the Prince song “Let’s Go Crazy”. Universal Music Group, the copyright holder of that hit song, sued the baby’s mom for copyright violation. A judge ruled in favor of the mom and the baby, citing fair use.

Two things happened back in 2016 that concerned us. One is that Google terminated one of our Adwords account for Video Surgeon citing the downloading module as the cause. A few months later Google has sent a cease and desist letter to a company that sells a YouTube Downloader application, similar to what we provide in Video Surgeon and Song Surgeon.

Then as recently as last year (2019) Youtube banned one of our training videos on an older version of Song Surgeon that contained a discussion of the use of the YouTube downloading module. Subsequent to this we removed all videos from our YouTube accounts that referenced downloading and moved our entire video library for Download Surgeon from Youtube to Vimeo.

Because of these developments we made a business decision to remove the downloading (Sniffer) modules from Song Surgeon Version 5 and Video Surgeon Version 3.

Older versions of both Song Surgeon and Video Surgeon will not be affected by this decision and they will continue to contain the downloading modules. However, like all older versions of our products, when a newer version has been released, it will no longer be updated. Accordingly if this downloading module ceases to function at some point in the future we will not provide support for it or fix it.

We know that many customers use and like the downloading modules. To meet this need we have done two things. 1) We have consolidated the downloading module found in our other products into a single product called Download Surgeon; plus we have added additional capabilities. This will allow customers who want these downloading features to be able to access them, while at the same time, limiting our business exposure and shielding our main products, like Song Surgeon, from any adverse affects. 2.) We have built and maintain an online, YouTube Downloading tool which is also hosted on the Download Surgeon site. It can be found here:

If we were to receive a cease and desist letter we could shut down the Download Surgeon site and survive. However, if we continued to have the downloading modules in Video Surgeon (and Song Surgeon) and had to shut down these sites, our business would cease. Consequently the new version of Video Surgeon (Version 3) will NOT have any downloading modules in it

6. Am I required to own a Support Plan?
