A more visible indicator that a track is pre-rendering
When you have more tracks than can fit vertically on the screen at once, and some are set to pre-render, you have to watch for the little circle turning blue as you scroll to know if something is prerendering. I would like one of the following:
1. The entire track properties/info area at the left end of the track turns a different color instead of the same gray as other tracks (or turns a tinted version of gray). Allow user to select what the color is.
2. The whole track or at least the info/properties area is given a bright outline in the track's color or in a color chosen by the user.
When I have a complex multitrack session in progress the pre-rendering sometimes takes up a lot of processing power and I get the telltale clicking noises as I'm listening. Then I have to look for which channels are the culprit and wait for them to finish. It would be nice to be able to see at a glance when they're done.
