    After searching endlessly with no luck I've yet to find a way to disable dock animations or an application that can do so. Has anyone had any luck with this and with disabling shadows as well?

    Onyx lets you change the dock animations but not disable them.

    Perhaps changing the minimize effect to "Scale" in the Dock preferences would help :) Give it a try.

    Props to keithOrbit and DAMNiatx for attempting to be sly but as stated in the comment right above theres Onyx doesn't allow disabling of the dock minimizing and maximizing animations so it's useless for this. I'm sure Onyx is a great app, but not for the purpose being asked. MacPilot is a good suggestion but doesn't have an option for it either. :/ Any other ideas?

    Opening application animations do not include minimizing and maximizing. Doesn't work.

    You could try TinkerTool, the list of things you can mess with is very long- I'll let you peruse it to see if what you want is there.

    Thanks miles but it's not there either. I've been searching more about it but still can't find a solution. :(

    seems like something there should be an option for.. especially if you've got a low end machine and you're trying to save as many system resources as possible... but i personally have no idea. i'd definitely like to know, though!
