*** CONTINUED AS "BE::Animated" ***

A generic animation effect for kwin.
Think of BeDropped on steroids.

It allows you to -per window type- combine various animations on
- Opacity
- Scale
- Position
- Size
- Rotation
- Brightness
- Saturation

on (so far)
- Window Added (Show)
- Window Closed
- Window Minimized
- Window Unminimized

and could by this replace the Scale, Fade, Glide effects and most of BeDropped.

It also fades opacity changes but so far lacks support for at least Un/Shading and Un/Maximization (requires some addition to KWin for 4.8)

Since it's mostly a demo for the AnimationEffect class which i'd like to add to KWin for 4.8 so that various effects can be rebased onto it it is really important to have a lot of testing, feedback and bug reports on this to have the class in perfect shape for KWin.

Thanks a lot, much fun creating animations and feel free to share them (eg. post them here or whatever)


*** HOTFIX *** workaround for a bug in KWin 4.8.0 - many thanks to Florian S. for patient testing

* unifies damage calculation of scaling and translation. Should fix remaining glitches.

Still: Test! Stress it with complex funny animation combos and try the show paint effect to check it doesn't repaint too much either ("Fly my pretties, fly" :-)

* mostly performance related. Doesn't repaint the entire screen but only the relevant area (but for the rotation)
This is prone to repaint glitches, so test it and feel free to report.

* skip resize animations for just shown windows (plasma extenders?)
* add experimental support to substitute the "sliding popups" effect (disable it in case)

Bugfix release:
a) windows that cross the top or left edge of the screen didn't animate the position
b) resize signals were sometimes connected twice (don't ask me why)

We're using QEasingCurve's now, what means all your animation shapes are now wrong - sorry (but it's not gonna change again, promised)
Notice that all other settings remain valid, so you actually 'only' have to step through your animations and fix the shape.

* GOOD NEWS everyone ;-)
- There's now "Implicit activation" which matches windows being activated for show/unminimize events (if those are animated)
- There's more control on virtual desktop changes
- Would you please stop playing with the maximize button now? ...
Ie. the release highlight are probably animated resizes =) They could need visual improvement, like blending, though =)

* Fixed a theoretic segfault
* Tried to "unscarify" the UI (w/o massive changes) - maybe it got worse. Shout out loud.
* Animated Opacity & Size changes are (now) configurable
* There's a PKGBUILD, so Arch users can just call... well, an Arch user is supposed to know or figure that :P

* 3 more animation shapes (overshoot either direction)
* ignore slidingPopups (plasma notifications)
* if there's a delay, the window stays at the source position until the animation starts
* dbus interface (you can also define custom animation aliases and call them via dbus - just so far the config UI can't and you'll have to edit them by hand ;-)
* i recall to have fixed two or three bugs, but forgot which :P

* Fixed a bunch of ui bugs, including pointless value restrictions ;-)
* Fixed "relativity" handling for several transition modes
* Added Gaussian animation shape (allowing bumps)
* Added support for deactivating windows animations
* Added support for desktop change animations
* Probably forgot some other changes ;-)

Would be nice to get some help.

Please obtain the sources from here:

And do no longer build against the bundled versions of animationeffect - the class is maintained in kwin and up-to-date there.
(The git sources and probably even this package should actually have them completely deactivated - was only required for KDE 4.8)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
