since beta24, vvvv starts up really slow. i tried the new release on a HP Touchsmart PC and it is even more a pain than on my SSD driven machine.
I think its time for some feedback of whats going on or some loading bar. just something giving you a clue the software is not crashed.
second, the node browser is taking 'ages' after startup as well. isn't there a way to cache things of whatever it's doing the first time ?
same applies to program startup. any chance to improve speed ?
why i don't like it ?
i always loved the 'snapiness' of vvvv. open the program like you take a sheet of paper and patch down your idea. that's gone now...it starts up like photoshop. and its not just me, some of my beginner students asked me if the program is crashed on startup. that's not a good feedback.
