Menu bar icon should be red when recording

It's very difficult to distinguish when I screenflow is either recording or on pause since the two icons are way too similar. 

I was thinking another solution for pause was making the red circle icon flicker. Or a maybe yellow icon? It needs to be something that is really alerting that you are on pause and nothing is being recorded. 

I've paused many times and come back only to realize I haven' been recording this whole time cause it's so difficult to tell between the two. The icon is so small and my screen is a little away from me when I record.

    Most macOS icons shy away from that as part of the conventions they want developers to follow. For developer consideration though. FLOW-11562

    I think this would be helpful, especially as an accessibility improvement for seeing the recording status easily.  Voted.

    Developers say changes in macOS around light and dark mode discourage or prevent doing this.
