I've figured out how to properly capture transparent windows with alpha mask (woot!)
It will be in the next version.

An early alpha of ScreenshotCaptor with ability to capture non-rectangular windows is now uploaded.  It also fixes an inefficiency which was delaying display of new screenshots significantly - yay!

Message me for private early alpha link.

People who prefer stable releases should just wait for the public release.

some screenshots.

here you can see how it finds the active non-rectangular window so the dimming effects can apply to it:



and here its used to autocrop the active non-rectangular window region and apply a nice shadow around it:

yes it's done elsewhere, i'm not the only one.

Obviously you aren't often capturing these crazy shaped windows, BUT if you use a windows xp or vista theme with rounded corners and such, then you probably noticed that screenshot captor used to give you a tiny bit of desktop background where the corners were which could be ugly.  so this wil fix that smiley

yep, it's get region data and then walking the image and masking it according to PtInRegion.

Windows Live Messenger has some problem with rounded corner (It's the only program for the moment)



Is there a special way to capture the WLM Window ? ("Active Window", "Window Object")
I capture it with "Window Object"
