Quartz Builder app loading feedback

It would be nice if a build app could give some feedback when loading. Sometimes some of my larger compositions build to an app have up to 10/20 seconds loading time, and while loading there is no visual feedback.

Either a standard progress bar, or even better some kind of definable 'splash screen' would be nice to have.

its pretty easy to design your own indeterminate progress splash screen. i would use the signal from a directory scanner to load an external composition. once the load of the composition is complete turn off the loading indicator and enable the composition.

a determinate progress bar can be made by off-setting the current patch time by the loading time. see example.

Great solution! It still needs some loading time after the counter is at 100% (probably due to the high amount of audio and 3d I'm using), but it's nice to be able to give some feedback to the user when starting an application. Thanks for sharing!
