Bug Description

[Impact]
· When moving a window we should just paint its shape, to save redraws.
· Grid animation should be disabled even on fade-out.

[Test Case]
1. $ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity lowgfx true
2. Move a window, make sure that just the shape is previewed.
3. Move a window in a corner/edge of the screen, make sure the animation that starts is just the "color overlay".
4. Open the Dash -> move the mouse over the launcher icon
5. the saturation effect should be immediate

[Potential Regression]
Please make sure that the animations work properly when lowgfx == false
