Avid has a neat feature called Dynamic Media Folders, where you can create watch folders that can be looking for specific media files and then automatically import them.
Here is how you set up the Dynamic Media Folders. Select the icon here
or select the Dynamic Media Folders from the "tools" menu
Here you start to select the watch folder, by clicking on the "+" icon and browse to select the folder. It is important to set the watch to be the same as the Desktop App download folder, but more about later.
Click on the "Profiles" editor to set-up the profile.
You can set many options, but in this case, I have set the watch folder to only look for Quicktime files.
Open the ioGates Desktop App and verify that the Avid watch folder and the ioGates download folder it the same. To open the Desktop App settings menu, you click on the 3 dots.
Now you can verify that the Avid watch folder and Desktop App download folder path is the same and auto-download is enabled in the Desktop App.
I assume that you have created a link from ioGates and pasted this into the Desktop App if you need help to the Desktop App see link here.
Now we have a link from ioGates cloud library folder "To Avid" to my Avid workstation local folder or shared drive.
Files that I add to my cloud folder will now be automatically downloaded into the Avid watch folder.
All you need in the Avid is to press the green Acquire and your clips are ready for editing.
