When you create a Puppet have a Puppet Preview Panel show along side the Properties Panel automatically, rather than having to create a Scene.
Make all adjustments, behaviors and tools available while working on the selected Puppet. This would save the need of swapping continually from Puppet to Scene.
I know you can have the Scene available while working on the Puppet, so you can see how adjustments work, but this also changes the Properties too.
A user should be able to make the adjustments to get there Puppet as they prefer, in the Puppet section, before going to the Scene.
The Scene should only be needed for recording purposes.
