Shift click deletes an envelope. How about Alt click disables it and puts an X over the E to show at a glance that there is disabled data? This would be tremendously useful for all sorts of applications, particularly render passes and temporary test render optimization and such. An envelope for disabling envelopes would be useful too...

I agree...it'd be nice to be able to disable/mute channels during animation.

Absolutely.+ --Please submit thru your account page (it's under 'bug reports') so it gets "in the system", FWIW.

Great idea, simple, powerful.

Envelopes show up in the GE, don't they? Perhaps a Channel Modifier could act as a toggle. An Expression certainly could.

EDIT: OK, here's how to do it (if we're not just discussing an excellent UI idea): Pick the Envelope in the GE. Apply the EXPRESSION Channel Modifier to the channel. in the dialog, enter an appropriate value. Now you can toggle the keyframed envelope back ON by disabling the Channel Modifier.

I'm sure a clever Expression could do something better, maybe with a Null.
