revamp the mesh warp
the whole distort family effects would need some love, but the mesh warp could be a super powerful tool if could :
-have access to every points and tangeants positions
-lasso select points
-scale, shear, rotate the grid to affect only a part of the image
-making it 3d
-promote it to b 32bpc gpu accelerated
-go beyond those request and make it a weapon of choice
to my knowledge this effect has been change only once to be able to move points with arrow keys...

I have a love/hate relationship with the Mesh Warp. It really feels like a beta version of the tool. So much potential but almost impossible to practically use. In addition to your suggestions, I would like there to be an "Auto" switch for the tangents, so they automatically move to maintain relative average distance to the next point. Years of my life wasted moving points close to each other and then endlessly fiddling with the finicky tangent handles to move them back between the points.

And import/support for 3d camera track or mocha!
Improve the corner pin controls too, its a shame! Looks like a draft tool sometimes!

This definitely needs some attention. It's SO fiddly to use.
Please give us the easy ability to attach the grid to footage too, and/or points of the grid to tracked nulls. It would make it so much more usable.
I agree as well. Being able to fully manipulate all points, lassoing multiple points, and resizing the grid to only affect a portion of the image are all things the grid warps in Nuke and Fusion/resolve have had for years. Nuke even has the ability to add rows and columns outside of the initial grid setup. At a minimum people should be able to move multiple points at once.

Mesh warp absolutely need a revamp. access to points can make it work with motion tracking data the same way as new Nuke grid warp tracker, using a start pose.

I agree. This is standard go-to tool in other packages and it could definitely need some love. One more feature on top of the requests above.
-Ability to use a brush with falloff to adjust multiple points at once.
