Release File Locks

When processing is done on an input file, I close that input manually which closes the associated output file. However, the output file is still locked so I can’t move it. I have to wait until all the other processes are finished to close TVAI, which releases all file locks. Would you release this lock on file close so I don’t have to wait?

Also, an Automatically Close Input on Completion option would be nice so I don’t have to manually close the input/output file.

While we’re at it, an Automatically Close TVAI on Completion option would be appreciated as well.

Please fix this, it’s really annoying!

Not sure if this description is the same as my experience. After processing is complete, I manually close all input and output files, but the output file is still locked. As far as I can tell, no Video AI processing is in progress. I have not tried waiting (for how long?) to see whether the lock goes away by itself. I exit Video AI and the lock goes away then.

When a file is closed, the lock should be released. That should be a no-brainer.
My system is Windows 11.

Still a problem in VideoAI v3.2.8 on Windows 11.
