vb.net forms transition

I've the following situation: I'm developing a kiosk app (you know, without keyboard, only touch screen) where form1 calls form2, and this one call form3, etc,etc.

Those forms have the same background image (1500x1121, 150x150dpi,24 bits) streched to a 1280x1024 form size and most of them loads at least 2 images as buttons and one extra image as information text.

The code i'm using to call from one form to another is the following:

        Dim frmSCR001 As New SCR001
        frmSCR001.Show()
        Me.Dispose(False)

The fact is that the next screen flashes when is loaded. Is possible make that transition between forms more smoothly?

In VB6 I really don't remember this situation.

Tks in advance,

Usually, a form does not show until after its Load event terminates. But it can be forced to show before that point with a Show method or by setting its Visible property to True in the Load event code. When you do that, the form appears sooner, but might not be completely built, which might cause flashing.
