Is it possible to have live tiles enabled, but with the animation (scrolling) disabled?

I find the scrolling animated live tiles on the windows 8.1 (or 8) start screen very distracting/irritating.

I know I can turn live tile off, which turns the tile into a dead rectangle, with just the name of the app on it.

Is there a way to get the middle ground? Ie, I'd like the news headline and picture, or weather, or whatever, just without the scrolling animation?
