      As a user, I'd like to have easy access to the existing animation controls.

      To accomplish this I'd suggest a new tab titled "Animations" that would provide control over the default animations. This and could later be turned into a full AO preference system. The tab would start by containing the following items:

      • Move avatar lips when speaking (Currently being thought to be moved
        to the Sound & Media tab.)
      • Play animation while typing (Checkbox - currently under the Debug
        Setting "PlayTypingAnim")
      • Play animation when taking a snapshot (Checkbax - currently under
        the Debug Setting "QuietSnapshotsToDisk" with inverted logic)

      These my family and I have been guiding people to for a while, as they cause some serious distractions in a meeting setting.

      In the future it might be a good idea to be able to select from alternate animations in this menu for each animation event. Not sure how that would be usefully implemented, but is an option. (And yes, I've worked with the anim overrider built into Imprudence... It's not exactly user friendly, but is pretty good for the current constraints. I think there might be a better way, but it might be complex.)
