Is it possible to add window resize animation feature to windowFX? Both default windows maximize and unmaximize actions and corner drag resize animation would be great to see as well

They said it's not possible to add maximize and restore down animations.

Is it some kind of microsoft windows limitations?

no.

the problem is that the content of a window is different at different window sizes. there is nothing to zoom inside, but rather to rearrange. just imagine an explorer window, it will show more icons if it gets bigger.

the ElementaryOS window manager has such a feature. you can see it in the first video here: http://elementaryos.org/journal/meet-gala-window-manager the developers there have chosen to actually zoom the content during the animation.

looks pretty good actually. but imagine there would be a user option for slower animation speed ... the result would just suck.

As an experimental option it would be interesting to try it out anyway

Or the refreshing and rearranging of icons could be kept on hold until the playing of animation is complete. That would effectively solve this problem.

It's a pity WindowsFX doesn't have this animation. I kind of like the way OS X does it when a windows is maximized and resized. The fading effect brings a different element to user experience.
