AVCHD in Watch Folder

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to solve a workflow problem that I have with AVCHD files.  As many of you know, avchd files on a mac get put into one "folder" called AVCHD.  I shoot on 3 cameras and often have 15+ clips on each camera per shoot.  I would like to transcode these files into ProRes Proxy files for ease of editing and file management (it is becoming a huge pain to have tons of files labeled "AVCHD."  So I see that I can drop the AVCHD file into Media Encoder and it will queue all of the separate clips which is great. However, when I set up a Watch Folder, it will pick up Mp4's I drop in, but doesn't respond to the AVCHD file.  Is there a way to do this?  I would love to be able to drop my cards into the folders and have them ready the next morning as individual prores files.  Working on CC 2018.  Thanks!
