The Autoimport feature is activated whenever an asset is imported into a Premiere Pro or After Effects project.

If an Autoimport profile is assigned while the Helmut4 Panel is active, it will generate a new job.

Streams related to this trigger allows to use several wildcards e.g. {job.assetId} and {job.assetNodeId}.

For a more advanced workflow, consider incorporating a Prestream within the Autoimport profile.


Profile & Group

Only one auto-import profile can be assigned to a group. Assigning multiple auto-import profiles to the same group may cause issues and should be avoided.

Import Cosmo Panel

Assets imported via the Cosmo Panel will not trigger the Autoimport. Alternatively, the Panel_Import can be utilized for this purpose.

The Autoimport feature will always be triggered by sequences and compositions. This behavior is a result of the internal processing of project files within the host application.

Host Assignment

Any stream with this trigger must have "CLIENT" as the host type. Since this stream needs to be assigned to any user/client, server execution is not possible.
