Time delay to take screen shot - Macromedia Director 3D

Hi all, i'm using the 'ScreenToFile' function to take a screen shot of the screen, but before I use this command, I use a displaySave() to display a place to save the image... All good but when the screen takes the photo, it still has the remnense of the 'save dialog box'. Any ways to get around this... Thanks!...

    sounds like you'll need to allow a new frame update to elapse before
    snapshotting the screen. Can you do this by setting a variable to show that a
    screenshot should be taken next frame, then unsetting once the shot is taken?

    Alternatively, try adding an 'updateStage' command directly after the
    displaySave command finishes.
