File Structure

This page describes file structure of the Cascadeur application

Main Program Folder

By default, the main program folder is named Cascadeur across all platforms

Note: During installation, you can specify another name for the main folder; in this case, that name will be used instead of the default one

The scenes folder at the root of the main folder contains the sample scenes.

Application Data

Program data is stored in a dedicated folder at the following location:

  • Windows: C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\Nekki Limited\Cascadeur
  • Ubuntu: /home/<user_name>/.local/share/Nekki Limited\Cascadeur

All of the program settings are stored in several .ini files placed in this directory. It also includes a number of subfolders:

  • autosave stores backup save files for recently used scenes. Autosaving is performed automatically, its frequency can be adjusted in Cascadeur's Settings window
    The files in this folder can be accessed by selecting Open autosave file from the File menu
  • cache stores cache files
  • dumps contains crash dumps.
  • file_preview contains .png images depicting recently used scenes (these images are seen on the splash screen under the Recent Files tab)
  • logs contain program log in the form of a text file

Note: If these files are deleted, all user settings will be reset (missing files are recreated on starting up the program, but with default settings)

Crash Dumps

The location of Cascadeur crash dumps depends on your system settings.
By default, the following directory is used:

  • C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\CrashDumps
