Default Better pre-roll notification, please

I don't know why, but just counting down in the title bar isn't doing it for me.

Can it be possible to somehow blur the area that LICEcap will capture during the pre-roll, AND/OR add big 3 2 1 countdown centered in that window (optional of course)?

Something like this would be MUCH clearer:

There's a slight bug in my GIF, I accidentally blurred the cursor in one frame, naturally LICEcap shouldn't do that

mmh i didn't even realise there was a preroll, guess that's why the gif i made the other day missed off the first second or too. So yeah i like the big numbers idea, even if it's just to show first time users that there is a count down. Not sure there is any need to blur anything though.

edit: although on second thought you would need the blur to ensure the numbers don't blend into the background.

I fell into the same trap several times.
Just realised now there's a preroll by reading this thread.

So +1.
