Internal Directory

The Internal folder stores intermediate results and configuration files required by SURE during processing. This folder stores the log files usually required when reporting issues to the Customer Success team.

Be aware that the deliverable items stored in the Results folder are the ones that have undergone all optimization and filtering steps. That is why they should be preferred over the intermediate results stored in the Internal folder.

Warning

The Internal folder is essential to the state and integrity of a SURE Project. Its content should not be modified in any way, unless explicit instructions are given by the nFrames Customer Success team.
