Who's Zooming Whom? Attunement to Animation in the Interface.
Chui, Michael; Dillon, Andrew
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v48 n11 p1067-72 Nov 1997
Two controlled experiments examined whether the animated zooming effect accompanying the opening or closing of a folder in the Apple Macintosh graphical user interface aids in the user's perception of which window corresponds to which folder. Results suggest users may become attuned to the informational content of the zooming effect with experience. (AEF)
