Automated Import via Hot-Folders

K4 Drop Folders Adavnced automates the import of files into vjoon K4 by scanning one or more predefined hot-folders to integrate third-party-systems without using the vjoon API. Together with other add-ons, like K4 Captions & Credits, K4 External Task Dispatcher and K4 XML Exporter, you can use K4 Drop Folders Advanced to automate your entire picture workflow, sourcing pictures and meta data information from asset management or retrieval systems into the vjoon K4 system, automatically creating frames for captions and credits maintaining the connection to meta data fields, and finally exporting, archiving or repurposing information via K4 XML Exporter.

K4 Drop Folders Advanced makes it so much easier to import articles, for example, from a web CMS or Word documents. This straightforward yet efficient way of connecting a Web CMS to vjoon K4 affords users some very convenient options. They can automatically port articles that were drafted in programs such as Wordpress and Drupal to vjoon K4, add styles as they see fit, and edit content that much faster.
