Add "Paused" / "LiveView" to the Progress Wheel for F&F/Planetary


Even though there are the Large "Play" / "Pause" buttons in the lower-right during the LiveView-enabled Modes, the actual LiveView status is confusing if you don't have enough Motion/Noise in the Image Display to actually confirm whether the DSLR Sensor is "Active" or "Paused" (and hence "Cooling" or "Building-up Heat").


When an AVI is being Captured, the Progress Wheel is displayed (although it states "Busy" in a confusing manner for Planetary Capture), but at other times in these Modes it is dimmed/unused.


Posting the actual LiveView Status to the Progress Center would be an unmistakable (and unmissable) indicator.


(The "highlight" on the Play/Pause button is especially hard to confirm when one has Rubylith over the Laptop Screen.

I unfortunately learned this the hard way while thinking that I was "Cooling" the LiveView Sensor in between AVI Captures of the recent Jovian Triple Transit of 1/24.

I got some rather "Warm" AVI Captures towards the middle of this multi-hour Event...)

When using the "Pause", I can sometimes hear the Mirror-Box drop.  Other times I cannot...

Is it accurate that the Mirror-Box will ALWAYS Drop when LiveView is Paused ??


Yes, with 3.1.2 the mirror will drop each time you pause.  Before that you had to move away out of F&F.  If you don;t hear the mirror flop down it is already down... probably due to a snapped picture.
