It's very easy to get confused when doing 3D, so any road-signs along the way are appreciated.

I was just watching a FLOCKING tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzdh1fHzqLc) and noticed that the Director panel did not list which Mesh it was attached to (e.g @5:21).

This seems like a prime opportunity to get confused and adjust the settings on the wrong director.

To address such an eventuality I suggest that the currently under-utilized TITLE BAR of the Director panel be amended to include the current meshes name, to make it abundantly clear which Director one is currently adjusting.


In general, the more roadmaps and reminders we have of 'where' we are in the program, the better. There's a couple other places beyond Flocking within Lightwave where a sub-panel is opened rather ambiguously, and labeling them clearly would be A Good Thing. So, more Title Bar action, please.
