Does anybody using this, to change automation color? Does it usable at all in any released RE?

info.lua:
automation_highlight_color = {r = 60, g = 255, b = 2}

Ahh, I ask, is there a 'visible' / 'not visible' option available other than Clear Automation :-)

Anyway, the Edit Automation (EA) colour on Ekssperimental Sounds' - Sadist is Red

EA on Time Signature on the Transport Panel comes up Pink

So I guess there is a way and is used

The Idea behind this is most likely to set an alternative colour in case the default automation marker colour clashes with the background graphic of your RE.

Thanks, as expected. I just didn't notice the use of other colors in reason devices and RE before.

You have to ask permission from RS to change it, or it will fail acceptance,

Hope this helps,

Thank You for this info)
I ask because remember that try to change it in builds, local build works with changed color, and as remember in released version find default color. Used this in previous SDKs years ago.
Good to know that need to ask permission.
