David, I'm glad to know you like it. I tried to find a UI mailing list, but
I had no luck. If there's any place most appropriated to discuss this
topic, please let me know.

*1 - I agree with you, but the Jump To Cut addon has too much options that
should be revised before inclusion to avoid cluttering the UI. Still then,
Multicam should (also) have these options because they relates with the
workflow implied by it.

*2 - I forgot to include Adjustment Layer, but now you've said, I check up
and currently it do have Trim options. In my proposal, these options should
be in the Strip tab and I'll update the proposal soon as I can. Thank you
for pointing me about it.

3* - I agree that Pan should be better placed in the Strip tab, but it's
not clear yet. I'll wait for more feedback before making this change.

If you're talking about the Preview + Sequencer mode that mixes the strip
and non strip options in the same panel, I think the Preview options should
be placed on their own tab. But it certainly deserves further investigation.

Best regards!
