I assume you mean when you enter the recording screen? You can't get a
prompt when you have started the recording.

When you pause (i.e press Play to pause) the MAS is still in recording
mode. If we enter Play mode here, the file will be corrupted, since the
last frame is still in the MAS memory and will be lost when leaving the
recording mode.

It will not prerecord when you pause the recording, only when you stop it.

Maybe you mean "stop" when you say "pause"?

If you do mean stop, then I'd say that your idea is feasible.
