Software from the future: watch folder

Someday… maybe we will be able to have a special bin or “watch folder” in our non-linear editing application of choice. That special “watch folder” will watch a designated folder in the Finder of your Macintosh and whenever you add an element to that folder it will automatically be updated in the bin of your NLE app that is currently watching that folder. This would be very handy if you are constantly getting new music and graphics to add to an edit.
