Disabling Zooming Animations in LR 4.x to Improve Performance

What if the extraneous zooming animations in LR would be turned off in the options? Would that improve performance? Clicking will be instant display of the zoomed area of interest.

I've heard about those animations, but never experienced them - what is animated? Is this a Mac thing maybe, or Windows too?

Hi Rob, the "animations" I refer to the following: suppose you have rendered your images 1:1. You are viewing your image at "Fit To" mode where the image is showing on your screen without any cropping.

Now, you have elected to zoom 1:1 to the eyes or where ever you wish to check focus. The "zoom" that occurs between the "Fit To" image to the 1:1 zoom to the area of your focus is the "animation" I refer.

I brought this up because I am primarily a PhaseONE CaptureONE PRO 7 user and that software has been built like a tank. I have been using it 2008 and I have NEVER experienced any intense performance or severe anomalies. In CaptureONE PRO, there are no "animations" I had described earlier.

I figure that . . . without these animations, it might save GPU or CPU cycles. In the computing realm, I think any cycles saved could be thwarted to the actual processing and handling of RAW files, yes?
