Improvements to behaviors

I didn't see this listed in either of the last two feature request round ups, so posting here so folks can vote and hopefully we will see improvements.

First, I absolutely LOVE the new behaviors. I just want them to be better!

*USER DEFINED BEHAVIORS*

I recall when they were introduced in the beta, I saw an option named "User Defined" or something to that effect. It gave me hope that we could create our own behaviors and give them names. So the first point is to provide an ability for us to create our own and name them what we want.

*BEHAVIOR SHARING*

If we could create our own behaviors, I could see a real need for an ability to share them easily by exporting them as well as importing them.

*BEHAVIOR CONFIGURATION VIA PROPERTIES PANEL*

When configuring a behavior, we see the option of configuring the IN, the DURING, and the OUT events. And often, for each event, there is a Speed adjustment. But it's confusing as all get out to see something like 83%. 83% of WHAT, exactly‽

What would seem so much better and far more intuitive would be to either replace speed with Duration (in seconds and frames) or leave speed there and add a Duration area. If this were done I think a simple slider with the dot in the center would be sufficient to either slow it down or speed it up from the default.



*BEHAVIOR CONFIGURATION VIA TIMELINE*

As changes are made in the Properties panel, I would love to see indications on the timeline. For example, something like this:



And optimally, just as we are able to click and drag the edges of the media to adjust overall play time, I would want the ability to click on the start and end points of the shaded sections to adjust the timing.



Hopefully I've been clear enough for these to be easily understood.

COME ON FOLKS!!!! CLICK THAT VOTE BUTTON IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF YOUR BROWSER!!!!



Again, as always, thanks for listening! Rick :)
