Recreating Finder launch animation

  • I would like to have the same effect finder does when opening a file
    or application to provide some feedback to the user.
    However I have no idea where to start to do this type of animation.
    Which is basically an image growing and fading away.

    Should i be getting into Core Animation, or is that an overkill?

    How can I do stuff like that? Some directions would be nice.

    Thank you for your time.

    Create an overlay window (a borderless window at maximum window level
    with a clear background) and do the drawing there.
