Short description of error
when the current render is open in a new window and I add whatever media to the VSE or even when just closing the add file to vse dialog blender changes to the "new window" with the current render in it and not back to the normal blender window with for example the vse.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • render your project with the render appearing in a new window and not a docked part in blender,
  • switch to vse window; add media not by drag & drop, but by file browser window that appears by this:

  • and you are in the render window.

Feature request:
and while working with VSE I found that it would speed up the workflow when there was a "add media" option on top of the "add movie" "add sound" "add image" option and blender shows all media files in a folder, searching media files by alpha is faster than choosing the correct media type beforehand every time. after the file browser is open another filter option could also work... just a suggestion so that the vse coder also reads this :)
