Bug Description

unity 4.10.2-0ubuntu2, Ubuntu Ocelot

1. Have the launcher hidden (e.g. by maximizing a window, or having a window near the left edge of the screen).
2. Press the Super key.

What happens:
* The Dash fades in.
* At the same time, the launcher slides in from the edge.

What should happen: When two or more elements appear because of a single action, any animations should be the same.

Ways in which this bug could be fixed:
* Not have a launcher, or not have a Dash.
* Have the launcher and Dash fade in together.
* Have the launcher and Dash slide in together.
* Have no animation when either element appears.

i'm totally agree with you, and i suggest a solution: a new compiz zoom efect, i found in other bug report, look:

This video shows a zoom efect on contextual menu, if its posible , it will be consistent with dash and launcher.

PD: You can find more information about these feature in that link:
