I am working on a UI design that will unify what used to require 3
separate applications. The problem that I am having is in initial
sketches I am seeing issues with context switching. I would like to
explore using workspace views or something similar to Eclipse
Perspectives.
I find that MS Outlook has similar notion I would like to explore as
UI changes when emailing, scheduling, managing tasks...
Anyone know of other examples of UI with this type of behavior?
Specifically I am looking for examples that display more fluid way of
switching in and out of different views.

Thanks - Brett C

Check out Ableton Live and Traktor. Both are audio/production apps that
shift between compose/setup and play/live. Among other more minor
context shifts.

Also, the Flash/After Effects models try to do the same thing with
better panel controls. Depending on how modal your modes are, that might
be better.
