The description is just those three images and the sentences as described in the report.
It is incredibly vague, includes no code, or indeed animation, just those three intermediate states.
If it is to be argued that it would apply to any animation that passed precisely through those states then it's so narrow it's meaningless
This suggests that regardless of the way it's implemented, or the speed of the animation, the patent claims it.
If it has those three exact stages, yes.
