VMware's knowledge base article, Setting Custom Video Memory Size in Fusion, shows the setting to change:
Setting Custom Video Memory Size in Fusion
There is no way to choose a different video memory size through the user interface. It must be done by editing the virtual machine settings (
.vmx) file. For more information, see Editing the .vmx file for your Fusion virtual machine (1014782).
Add this line to the .vmx file:
svga.vramSize = value_in_bytes
where value_in_bytes is the desired memory size in bytes
.vmx mentioned in the article is hidden within your virtual machine's bundle. To find the file to edit, right-click (or Control-click) on your virtual machine in the Finder and
select Show Package Contents.
If you have installed OS X on VMWare workstation for Windows, you need VMsvga2. Install that .pkg file inside OS X and you'll see a noticeable change in the animations.
You'll also find updated versions of VMsvga2 for Mavericks inside Files section. You are required to install all required patches & updates for everything to work.
