I quickly render a playblast as an MP4 for my supervisor to review, but then notice that there’s a sneaky bit of UI still in the viewport (Axis handles, deformers, camera, lights, etc) that distract from the overall picture. I quickly disable those, and hit render again, only to find that it won’t overwrite the older file. I try to delete it manually, in the Windows Explorer, but it won’t because the file is still open in Cinema. I really don’t want to increment my version number because of something so silly, but I also don’t want to quit my Cinema session just to delete the file. Sometimes I’ll actually go ahead and shut down the program because I’m stubborn, but then have to wait another 30 seconds before it’ll let me delete the file.
Is there anyway to force the deletion of the file?
