No, I don't know of a physics engine.

Looks quite interesting. Thanks for the pointer!

Whoa- physics would bring Anim8or to a new level!

In fact, a new level would be physics+audio+a little easier rigging/anim system... I think that would put a bow on it!

My suggestion is nothing important or immediate. I avidly and vigorously employ the 'Edge Properties' tool. If it were just a little more accessible or prominent or quick I think it would become a more popular tool (because it's REALLY powerful and useful when working with subdivides)

1. be able to choose how objects are mirrored in figure mode
2. live preview in figure mode (have a viewport playing a sequence to be able to spot deformation)

 That would be pretty amazing. :)
 Perhaps even just being able to 'short-cut key' through the modes. Then you could go quickly between figure and sequence/scene mode, and 'scrub' through a movement.........

 Or is there already a shortcut to change modes...? ..... probably is?........

It would work even better if you could pause the preview and paint weights on the messed up part of the preview and not be forgetting which vertices are wrong

 Yes. That would be even cooler.  The 'preview screen' could even be the sequence or scene..... sort've like, having both modes open at once, where in figure mode, sequence mode was showing in a smaller window, complete with scrub bar.......

With all the extra little additions to the ref image capabilities, it would be very useful if a lock feature was added ( Like in scene mode) then my ref image won`t keep moving about when working on a model.... just an idea!

A possibly small request-

A toggle-able select feature that selects either what IN the bounding box or whatever it TOUCHES. I think that'd be a useful little tool (though not urgent- take your time, Steve, and enjoy yourself!)

and an 'object-lock' feature or some way to edit one layer while others are still visible, if that's not implemented yet.

Alright, a lot of my 'requests' seem to be really cosmetic. This one is not super important but would just make my job a little quicker and i think would make edge properties a bit more useful and accessible for beginners.
I'm a HEAVY user or edge properties (I don't like double-cutting lines... too many vertices!) and I think a sliding scale for the options would be awesome!

Thanks for all your updates Steve. Is there anything we can get you? Tea? Coffee? :D

I had another idea that has to do with lighting/rendering.

Is there a way for single items to produce and show light? Say, a light bulb actually giving off light rather than doing some tricks to make it seem like it is? Just curious.

It would really help, particularly for tight spaces where people will notice in a render.

Nice idea.  Maybe something like attaching an object to a light and using it as both a local light source and giving it and emissive material with the color of the light.
