Blur effect source

Recommended Posts

Is the blur effect provided by Windows or do you use your own shaders?

It really depends on which part of Windows you speak.  Windows does have the native Acrylic which is coming along very nicely, and is beautifully rendered in its native apps.  For Windows frames, however this is accomplished with Bigmuscle's Aeroglass, and can be fine tuned with his GUI.  The GUI is a separate download which lets the user customize different aspects of the Aeroglass feature in Windows 10.

Windows 10 is at halfway moving to fluent design.

Some elements have nice acrylic material and other elements still have the old vista style blur.

What I'm asking is the blur effect that is controlled with the marked slider on the image in the attachment.

So this is a third kind of blur then? Not implemented by Microsoft, but uses a completely custom blur shader?

It's Big Muscle's own implementation. Windows 8's DWM still contains some code for such effects, while Windows 8.1 and later has it completely removed and it had to be re-implemented from scratch. At least that was officially said in the older threads few years ago.
