Default Temporary Tack Color Change

I have been using a custom command combining freeze and lock, and another command combining unfreeze and unlock, in order to temporarily reduce cpu load and prevent myself from making changes to a track while it is frozen. However, it would be nice if the track also changed color in order to signify that it is in this frozen and locked state. However, I use a color coding system for track organization so changing everything to the same colors for frozen/unfrozen isn't an option. Is there a temporary track color change or a translucence option? Or something else that might make frozen tracks stick out a little more?

Thank you

Hi

You can make custom action by adding the actions below:

Track: Freeze to stereo (render pre-fader, save/remove items and online FX)
SWS: Set selected track(s) to custom color x

An issue that I have with this solution is that I use green for guitars, red for drums, and yellow for bass, and a number of other colors for other things. If I change the color when freezing, I want to be able to change the color back to the original color without having to have to set up shortcuts for the 20 or so colors I use.

How about changing color of frozen media items to unified color(Blue for example)instead of track.
