Summary

Users are complaining the the Speed Effect panel is confusing, so here's a patch to simplify it, by keeping all options visible, but disabling those invalid with the current selection.

This suggestion has been developed with @david mcsween (davidmcsween) on the basis of the work of Paulo José Oliveira Amaro: https://blender.community/c/rightclickselect/zfbbbc/.

It may be confusing to new users that Frame Number and Scale only produce a freeze frame unless animated, so I would suggest that the default setting is a check mark in the Speed checkbox and a value of 1. I'm not able to solve this myself, neither am I able to add much needed limits on the values in the value widget:

  • When in Frame Number, then limit to number of frames of the current strip.
  • When in Speed, limit to positive values.
  • When in Scale limit to values between 0 and 1(or use a % scale of 1->100).

Disable Multiply Speed when Fit to Duration is selected.

I noticed that these "ui animations" slow down a lot in eevee when we handle heavy scenes ... so in my opinion, this type fixes are welcome ...
