Visual effects delay...

Hi Boo,

Probably, QuickTime is loading the first time you use a visual effect. Getting the qtVersion before using a visual effect might fix this.

Best regards,

However, when I create a standalone .exe file and run it, there is a delay on the first screen when clicking on the Next button. The card transition is set to a "wipe left" visual effect. The problem is, when I load the program and click on the Next button for the first time, there is a long delay (almost 4 seconds), then the next card loads by wiping left. When I click on the Back button the speed is normal, and when I click on the Next button again, the speed is normal... The problem only occurs when I click on the Next button for the first time. (This looks very awkward and unprofessional.) I removed the visual effect and tried it, and the speed is normal. (So the problem obviously has something to do with using a visual effect.)
