How to get Print Screen to work properly for SWTOR?

I know how to take a screenshot and I know where they are stored when you take them, but for some reason my SWTOR screenshots come up black :<.

Is this just a problem with my graphics card? I notice when you do press the Print Screen button that the game doesn't think about it at all. I thought that that might be a problem I'm having or something.

How can I get around this? I really would like to take some screenshots of my character so I have a reference to draw her :<.

Unfortunately i haven't gotten into Early Access yet that i may know why the default Print Screen option doesn't take proper screen shots for you.

However, you can try using an external program to take screenshots for you. Give fraps a try.

I use that program for all my screen caps and recording for various games. The free version should take screen shots and do videos up to 30 seconds (with small fraps watermark) for you no problem. Sounds like it will cover what you're after.
