Watch Folders

PostMon Jul 20, 2020 5:45 am

Would be AMAZING to have a bin setup that automatically imports clips into the bin when they are copied to the folder on the hard drive. So I dont have to copy a file to a folder and then import it to the bin. Sounds easy enough but with tons of clips it becomes a very repetitive process. If something like this already exists, would love to know how to do it.
Configuration:
Resolve Studio 16.2.8.005
Windows 10 Pro
32 Core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 128GB RAM
RTX 3090
GTX 1080 Ti
8TB SSD RAID
(1) 32" Ultra-Wide Display, (1) 27” Display

I know this is not an answer but you can achieve that with a script.
But I have to say from my very little experience with writing a watch folder script in python, that it is not as simple as it sounds. Especially on windows platform.

+1 for a feature request

Yes, definitely a +1 to this.

I am currently using a plugin called Watchtower to achieve this in Premiere, and desperately want to move to Resolve, but having to manually import footage when assets are added or changed would take so much more time, it's not worth the change yet without this feature.
