Is there any way to take snapshot of hidden component on the scene like flash does ?

At this time,the only solution i have found to take snapshot is the following
ssCore.Win.saveImage({..., path:"startdir://snapshot.jpg"});

but it can only take snapshot of visible items and i don't want to save my image, i have to display it immediatly and so get the bitmapdata directly.

Typically, i would want to take snapshot on every frame of my hidden visio activeX component like we can do with video on flash and then apply special effects.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Win.saveImage can only access what's visible in your application window (i.e. what Windows knows about). Windows doesn't manage windows that aren't visible (there would just be too much information to process), so unless the OCX itself provides some way to save the contents of its own window then there's no way to access it.
