what is "dual command"?

qt.SnapshotEngine is an option, if it is the best choice depends on your needs.
A more standard way is IMO to save simulation **data** (not just screenshot) and postprocess them separately.
Having data is "more valuable" then just an instant screenshots, you can export different results/images from one dataset.
E.g. you can save particle positions in a VTK format and postprocess them in Paraview [1].
There are other options for both file formats and postprocessing tool, but VTK/Paraview this is de facto standard (IMO).
