I'm not sure about this as I've not tested it, but I think that might be 
what the resolution and cpu usage control does on kde 4.4, kcontrol (aka 
system settings, even tho it's kde settings not system settings and system 
settings is too generic a name to be useful, so the old kcontrol name was 
better and more accurate), look and feel, appearance, style, fine tuning 

I've played with that a bit but couldn't figure out what it did.  However, 
the help says it controls internal animations, so I'd guess it controls 
such things as the kickoff slide effect, etc.

But that tab is new to kde4.4 I believe.  I don't know where the same 
thing would be set in 4.3 or earlier.  And it's a general animations 
control, I know of no way to set slide vs fade, except for the general 
window effects (not plasma components), on the look and feel, desktop, 
desktop effects, all effects tab.  So even if you're on 4.4 and I'm 
guessing correctly, I don't believe you can choose plasma fade vs slide, 
unless that happens to be a difference hidden behind the covers in one of 
the style, fine tuning settings.
