Does anyone know of a way to disable this animation:

open file animation

I recall being able to in previous iterations of OS X.


You can disable all animation in Finder with:

defaults write com.apple.finder DisableAllAnimations -bool true && killall -HUP Finder

I don't recall a preference just for this animation though.
