Not a mask per se, but you do have the ability to create a capture Preset that would do it.

Click here to see an article about how

To call it on demand, assign a keyboard shortcut to the preset.

Tell me a little more about the screen mask.
Are you hoping to add a mask to your monitor? So that when you're recording or capturing an image you cannot see anything that's underneath it?
I added this Dragon to my desktop. It's just a PNG image that sits on top of everything.
I could've used an image that was square-shaped, or round.
It could be a color or any image. I used the Dragon for the heck of it.

Are you trying to create a mask in the editor?
Or what exactly did you have in mind?
