I suggest a filter to hide modeling history, useless in the Attribute Editor, this add too much tabs (and keep it in the Channel Box). Sometimes it's hard to find the shader tab...

We'll see Autodesk Maya 2013 at GDC? At what hour?

Can't wait to see more improvements for the "average users" (modelers, animators, designers)

As inspiration I found an old post of hopeful fixes/features for maya 2009

Sep 20, 2008
Shatter effect(works 20% of the time:Buy blastcode and integrate it like CSmuscle),

bevelPlus barely working when creating text or illustrator files

need TEXT tools for texturing and animating text

need Cloning or Instancing tools-user friendly like c4d\'s cloner

First, kudos, the AE needs major updates, glad you guys are finally looking at it.

BUT this seems like paying peter to rob paul (yes in that order).

Containers still seem clunky to drive specific context editing per asset, and this is much the same i.e. lots of work to "present" contextual awareness/editors per asset.

Provide templates (yes), but also wrappers, so you don't have to continously write interfaces per asset but can stack the templates.

For presentation of the templates, still needs major re-work to not be a long list of tabs jammed into a sidebar.
