Yes, the code I looked at definitely took a rect and not an object. I suspect the new method is not taking a snapshot of the screen at all but rendering the object into an image. Wouldn't using the new method and asking for the current card work for most scenarios? Presumably if you want a subset of the screen after that you can crop part of the image?
