thanks for the videos joby..
but i just realized that these tricks may not work with SC trying to grab itself :)


Can you try grabbing some other application active windows?

OK. FC settings window, the settings for SC are the ones from your last screenshot.

so on the FC settings window even when you set that black and white delay to huge it still cuts it off like that?
can you send me a video of that?

and does this bad behavior also happen on non-modal windows? i can imagine this happening on a modal window which has the application main window behind it -- if this is how you are capturing them -- can you try capturing with top of the modal dialog not overlapping the main application window?

delay black+white... = 2000

1. modal window

2. modal window not overlapping main window (looks much better)

3. normal window

better, but not perfect. the rounded corners still being cut...

I capture modal dialogs like I do with windows. I move them on a white background (desktop with no visible icons).

/e: please notice that my problem is not only about the modal dialog not being active but also that the window is not fully captured since the corners are cut (which is wrong). you can see this behaviour in the screenshots of my first post.

"2. modal window not overlapping main window (looks much better)"
we can see that the window is active, yes. nonetheless the borders are cut.

I know this might sound fussy to some of you but the screenshots I take have to be perfect since they are being printed on our product box, shown on the website, printed in the manual... everywhere ;) I don't want to sound like a "know-it-all" and since my english is not my native language I fail at explaining things in a friendly way :D
