General tab is different for Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Project will be synced every time file or folder added to watch folder. Watchtower panel can be closed and auto import will still happen in background. Auto sync works across multiple opened projects in Premiere Pro.
In Premiere Pro when syncing bins a dialogue will appear and ask how to import files. It works for Premiere Pro, Illustrator and Photoshop project files.
In After Effects it is possible to choose how to import Photoshop and Illustrator files: as footage, composition or composition with retained layers sizes.
Premiere Pro event will notify you about sync results. After Effects will show notification in Info panel.
This helps me as a developer to see which Watchtower features are useful and which are not. See what data is collected.
When update will be available, download buttons will appear here.
Set filter for file extensions to import. You can toggle checkbox and add/delete file extension.
Set folder names to be ignored during import.
Filter is case insensitive, adding "proxies" will filter out all folders: "proxies", "Proxies", "PROXIES", "pRoXiEs" etc.
You can set Regex filter as well, put regex pattern between two slashes: "/_AME/"
In License tab you can see/copy license code used on current computer. It is possible to deactivate license on current machine.
