OK, the dox are a bit sparse about this, but to call it 
"undocumented"???

 From the dox about "answer effect":

"An encoded description of the visual effect the user chooses is placed 
in the it variable.

A good idea is to store "it" in a customproperty and use it later...

...
answer effect
## a QuickTime dialog will appear, where you can choose a transition..
if it <> empty then
    set the my_transition_1 of this stack to it
end if
...


Then you can use it with:

...
visual the my_transition_1 of this stack
go cd xyz
...

or:

...
hide img 1 with visual my_transition_1 of this stack
...

etc...

A bit unhandy, but not too and it works :-)

Hope that helps...
