Change Mission Control Animation Speed (Mountain Lion)
Authored by: keirthomas on Dec 23, '12 06:42:29AM

Not that I've found. I actively try and find these things for my book, Mac Kung Fu, which contains over 400 tips, tricks, hints and hacks for OS X (and is on sale now).

Some animation speeds appear to be hardwired into the code. Some appear to be controllable via a defaults write hack. Sadly, many of those relating to Spaces and the Dock appear to be hardwired.

I know of the following default write keys that deactivate animations (from a tip in my book):

Turn off pop-out window/dialog animations:
defaults write -g NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled -bool FALSE

Turn off Quick Look pop-out animations:
defaults write com.apple.finder QLPanelAnimationDuration -int 0;killall Finder

Turn off Mission Control animations:
defaults write com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration -int 0;killall Dock

Turn off dialog boxes folding out from the top of the screen:

defaults write -g NSWindowResizeTime -float 0.01
(then log out and back in again)

Turn off Launchpad animations (two lines to be typed on after the other):

defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-show-duration -int 0
defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-hide-duration -int 0;killall Dock

Turn off Dock hiding animations (two lines to be typed on after the other):

defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 0
defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -int 0;killall Dock

Incidentally, if Kirk wants to steal these for a front-page posting here on OS X Hints, do the decent thing and mention that they're from my book, OK? I worked hard to find some of these.
