firstly hi to everyone……..
there is a video on a site which i would like to download but the problem i have is it is 1 hour long and the part i would like to use is just over halfway through the video.
is there any way i can only download the part i want or do i have to download the whole video.
and then edit to use the part i want.
the footage is owned by me and i use cs6 as my editing software

Well, you wrote a subject, but no actual details as to what you are trying to do. Your question is a little broad. Where do you want to download a video from? Youtube? The way I would download a video would be through the various websites available online. You just copy and past the url and download the video. Once you have it you can drop it into an editor (Premiere, iMovie, etc) and then select what you want and delete what you don't.

From what I know this is not possible. You will need to download the entire video and then trim the parts you want in your video editing software. If the video is on your own YouTube channel you can download an MP4 version by going to Video Manager > Edit > Download MP4

There might be software out there that can do that, but I do not know of any if it goes exist. Personally I would download it and then trim what you want in your editing software. That would just be the easiest method. If the video is on your own channel you can download it after logging in. If it isn't, you might have to use something like KeepVid to download it.

thanks for the reply
yes the video is on you tube and i can download the whole thing but is there any way you can download just the part i want.
once i have that part i can use it as a loop for a backdrop for the video i am making.
do you know if there is any software you can use just to download parts of a video not the whole thing
