Blur Effect

The blur effect smoothes the image by blending adjacent pixels. This produces a smoother image and sometimes can be used to anti-aliase the image. For example texture flickering of insufficiently anti-aliased animations can be reduced this way.

The Blur effect can be controlled using the following settings:

  • Iterations: Repeats the effect multiple times. Unusually wide blurs can be created quickly using high iteration values.

  • Operation:The performed pixel operation.

    • Average - Pixel's new value is the average of the values inside the blur filter
    • Min - Pixel's new value is the minimum of the values inside the blur filter
    • Max - Pixel's new value is the maximum of the values inside the blur filter

  • Blurred Channel: The image channel to be blurred. Usually the color channel is the most suitable target.
