Visual effects delay...

All the stock visual effects should work without QuickTime, and basic effects like wipe/push should be ok.  Dissolve works without QT but looks very pixelized and dated.

Thanks Scott... Yep, I have it working now. Just curious if the wipe effect 
will work without QuickTime when running a compiled Mac app. (On Windows at 
the moment and cannot test on a Mac.)

The delay is likely due to the loading of QuickTime.  I believe there's an 
entry in docs about checking the qtVersion or similar in preOpenCard or 
stack to minimize the delay that can occur.  An alternate option is to set 
the dontUseQT to true to disable QuickTime, but only if you dont need QT for 
amything else.

Hi All,

I have a standalone (running under Windows 7) that has a problem... From the 
LiveCode IDE, everything works as expected. 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.)

Any idea as to why this is the case? Again, it works as expected when 
running the stack in the LiveCode IDE...

Thanks,

- Boo
