I have just answered you support ticket on the same matter and I would ask that we keep the discussion there for brevity. Once we reach a conclusion I suggest we post the results here for the rest of the community. I am asking this because I'd like to confirm the nature of the "custom animations" you are referring to, since this is not a feature of the RadWindow.
All the best,
the Telerik team
