Import files from network and watch folder contents

Hi guys! I just downloaded the demo version and doing some tests before buying the product. I noticed that I can only import files from my local drives and not from my local network. Is it supposed to work this way?

Also, is there a way for the composer to watch a specific folder and upload video files whenever I add them to the folder?

Thank you very much

Hello @rodrigoaben,

Welcome to the Community! :tada:

You should be able to import files both from your local device and from any network folder that you can access from your device. As you can see below, when I import files, I have access to my local drives (C and D) and to all my Network drives (K, M, P etc), and I even see other devices on the network.

However, keep in mind that, as the name says, it’s an “import” and media will be copied in your Experience folder, it’s not a link to a distant folder, it’s a copy that is made upon importation.
I recommend you to browse the Fundamentals articles from our Help Center, it’s explained in this one: Adding content to your experience using assets and collections

You can watch indeed the content of a specific folder as explained in this dedicated article by using Windows Folders As Dynamic Source for Collections.
When you change the content of such a folder, the collection in your Experience will be changed on the fly.

Kind regards,
