    Updating bin folders

    djparkerdiver Level 1

      Hello

       

      Does anyone know of a way of easily and quickly updating bin folders with new clips that have been added to your laptop or HD folding system?

       

      For example if i am shooting a 10 day scuba diving movie, on day one I add my new fin with the carefully thought out and organised folding structure with many different category folders such as 1) sharks 2) Rays 3) Divers 4).... and so on. Each evening I will then work on the edit a little.

       

      Then each day I import all the latest footage and sort it into the relevant folders. Is there any clever way of Premiere Pro talking to that folder and importing all the new footage in the correct folders? Or must i go into each folder manually and import or drag and drop?

       

      Im using PP 2018. Ive read online that FCP have already solved this problem so I'd be surprised if adobe haven't addressed it yet??

       

      Thanks

          Hi Dan,

          No, sorry. You have to do this work manually. There are ways to sort footage once it is imported, however, such as using search bins. Then place them into the appropriate bins.

           

          What you might try: Import footage into After Effects, which respects folder hierarchies. Then Copy/Paste the folders into Premiere Pro. Nothing auto updates the folders should you import more footage into your folders at the Finder/Explorer level.
