Activate a watch folder in Compressor
Watch folders need to be activated to monitor and process files.
In the Watch Folders workspace of Compressor, do one of the following:
Click the checkbox to the left of the watch folder name.
Select the watch folder, then click the Status pop-up menu in the Inspector and choose Activated.
Important: A watch folder must have at least one preset applied to it to be activated. A watch folder can’t be activated if its output folder is the same as the watch folder itself. If the watch folder and output folder are the same, or the output folder is inside a watch folder, a red warning icon appears to the right of the watch folder name, the Status pop-up menu in the inspector is dimmed, and an error appears in the Errors & Warnings window.
