The default effects in mutter just look wrong if you run it stand-alone or as the WM in xfce or any other DE that isn't Gnome Shell. In Gnome Shell the effects behave normal. It feels like I'm running some bad flash animation.

Since the fork muffin in Cinnamon have a configuration-tool there must be some settings that can be edited somewhere right? Dconf-editor doesn't have any, I've checked everywhere. I haven't tried muffin stand-alone though, so I don't know if it has the same problem.

What is Gnome Shell doing that makes the effects look different? Is it some sort of javascript or anything else?
