There are 2 small features that I think would be good in the blender render screen.
1. A hoz line that moves as the render progresses, This would be good for dark scenes and if you are wondering if you actually DID add lights to your scene or not.
2. A timer, When the render is done and the image is clicked on, allong with the rgba values- the render time its self would be usefull.
at the moment I type
time blender -b foo.blend -a
in linux this tills me how long it took.
Any opinion on this?
you can left click in the image window for rgba values
and the blender status bar displays render time (often disappears quickly)
if you are rendering an animation it is put on the console (added frame 1 (0 in avi) to blah.avi 20.02 or something)
