Default Animated Weather Home Screen?

Curious...does the weather on the home screen animate the same way as the HD2? I've always liked that on the HD2 but not seen it operating on the Evo.

For those not sure what I'm talking about, see the HD2 vs Evo comparison at 6:57 of this video review.

Thanks in advance!

I've heard that there's a setting that you an enable full-screen animation, but I'm not sure - I've never used Android or Sense.

Huh...you're right...missed it (maybe it looks less vibrant or lighting was different). Thanks!
