Hot Folders, also known as Auto RIP Folders, are folders linked to a particular Template File. Images are dropped into the Hot Folder and are automatically ripped based on the predefined settings of the Template File; AnaRIP must be open for the Hot Folders to operate. Based on the Hot Folders settings the ripped file is sent to a folder on the PC or directly to the printer.
Hot Folders require a location on a host computer for AnaRIP to RIP files from and may require additional folders to send the original image file to and a folder to send complete ripped files to. To Establish a Hot Folder, go to the QUEUE and click on Edit AutoRip Folders. Then select New. Fill out the AutoRiP Folder Editor settings according to how you wish to utilize the Hot Folder.
