Hi all! Almost every animation in OSX seems to have slowed down. The dock animation, expose, mission control and sometimes opening windows all have seem to drop in FPS. I'm not really sure how else to describe it. The machine I'm running on is a MBP from about 2 years ago with a 2.4 Core 2 Duo, 8 gigs of ram and an SSD. This should not be happening. It has happened to me before (on another OS, Lion) and the only thing that fixed it was a reformat (which I don't want to do again right now) and always starts out of the blue. I've tried running permissions repair, HDD repair and deleted all unnecessary files. I have a second HD in my laptop which holds all of my data, so I can't imagine its from having to much crap on the OSX partition. I wanted to see if anyone else has this issue or knows a solution. There is another thread from a few years ago, but the only advice was to change the time in which expose takes to run animations, but they're still choppy. The best description I have of my issue is when I use mission control, the window pops in and out. It seems to skip the entire scaling transition. Sorry for the verbose post! Any help is appreciated.
