audio and video track color coded

Allow not only color code the clips but also the tracks, which would override clips color (so every time you add a clip to a certain track, that clip takes the track color. Very useful for audio, specially when lots of tracks) Also, the audio track faders should be same color of the track.

Resolve has track coloring and I use it a lot. Very helpful to distinguish between dialog, music, effects, etc.

Though I do believe that clip color should override track color.

Exactly. AVID has it too. (don't remember how override works exactly there though)

This would be huge for those of us cutting multicamera shows with lots of tracks. Simply highlighting a track, even if we didn't have a variety of colors, would allow me to distinguish tracks that are grouped in a specific way (all the lav's, all the boom's, and the mono mixes, etc.).

I would love to see the whole track background have that color then.

I was surprised that this is not a thing.

It's embarrassing that 4 years later Premiere still doesn't have that even though both Avid and Resolve have had this for years now...

For me it would ideally be the background colour that would differentiate DX/FX/Mx tracks, with source clip colours still working.

Also some indication in the track lights to indicate which tracks you are dragging clips to. (Just a subtle shift in colour would do it).
