Improve capture UI
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently, the capture controls (screen grab / webcam) controls can be displayed by clicking on a "+" sign in the clip monitor (see screenshot). This is probably the worse UI in Kdenlive's history. Find a better way to expose the record controls.

I'm thinking, maybe replace the plus sign with a "capture" icon and have a dialog box pop up with the same options?
