  4. Additional trigger keys

    Not sure why the keys associated for triggers are limited to numbers and letters on the keyboard. I ought to be able to use other keyboard characters or even combinations of keystrokes to execute various triggers. I know I can add more using MIDI but that seems kind of silly when there are still so many keys on the keyboard that should be able to be programmed for trigger use.

  5. Execute trigger from latched trigger

    I like being able to latch triggers and end with "stop/sustain" so my characters can hold a pose with the push of a button. But I don't like having to unlatch the trigger before executing a new trigger. I would like move from one stop/sustained trigger to another without having to unlatch in-between. Basically I want my triggers to override and any latched behavior so I can move from one dynamic pose or motion directly into another.

  6. Jitter reduction In Body Tracking by interpolation.

    Hello. I was trying out the new Body tracking and i thought two parameters could help greatly with eliminating jitter.

    Interval and Degrees.

    While the body is tracked at all points at all time, the system would allow you to remove tracking issues that only last a few frames.

    interval would allow you to set a timeframe, that the software would then use as keyframe positions for the limbs and interpolate the tracked limbs towards those keyframe positions.

    The degrees function would use the live tracking and at all times be tracking the number of degrees your body tracker limbs…

  8. Improving user interface

    The user interface color desperately needs to have the flexibility to change like in other Adobe programs. The black background is way too dark!

  10. Puppets and Scenes in Project Window

    I hope if the puppets were sorted with each other and the scenes were sorted with each other and not combined the puppets and scenes.

  12. Closer integration with Stream Deck

    It would be very useful to have a closer integration with Stream Deck than there currently is. I easily run out of keys on my keyboard to use as triggers and to extend functionality to Stream Desk I need to run it as a midi device.

    Whilst this does work, it is laborious and having a direct integration would be ideal. This is not only for streaming but for general performance controls.

  13. typing letters in timeline should move simultaneouslyone after the other so you can

    should move simultaneously one after the other so you can basically type the word out instead of having to move to move the mouse

  15. I want the same reproducibility in the recording of physical property behaviors as in the recording.

    I recorded a scene in which a puppet flows in the wind using the physical properties behavior. However, when I play it back, it does not behave the same. Each time I play it back, the behavior is different.
    I hope that the next version will have the same behavior.

  20. Turn on visibility of sticks in Record workspace

    Similar to how you you can turn on the visibility of your dragger handles, there are times when I'd find it helpful if my sticks showed up green on the stage so I could troubleshoot their placement. When the legs or arms are warping in ways I don't like, the solution is often to trial-and-error move those sticks around and find the perfect sweet spot. I think I might be able to pinpoint what part of the stick is influencing the mesh in an ugly way if I could see the sticks while the puppet's moving.
