<aside> ⚠️ This is a small personal project. There might be bugs and some of them might mess up your project. I’ve tried testing everything and taking precautions to ensure no changes would destroy a project but there are potential use-cases and bugs that I haven’t even thought of. Use with caution!
The advanced importer tool has a very simple purpose — reduce the amount of time spent on importing B-Roll and manually managing bins (or syncing bins with the filesystem). The importer takes a folder on your file system and automatically imports it (every few seconds) to a bin in DaVinci Resolve. This allows you to do all of your file-management (at least for that specific bin) in your file system removing the need to reimport files or organize them in Resolve.
The best use-case for it would be making YouTube videos (I made this specifically to help me and my editor edit videos on my channel; the channel is not about Resolve).
The point is to speed up that kind of a workflow and many of the features would not make much sense to more advanced projects.
It looks like this (we’ll go in detail on how to use it below):
Install python 3.6 (Resolve won’t accept external plugins without it; I’m working on a fix).
choco install python --version=3.6.8
Download the latest advanced importer from it’s GitHub’s Releases page.
Extract all files in a directory of your choosing (there should be 2 files in the archive — the advanced importer and a config file).
Open a project DaVinci resolve.
