[REQUEST] Frost glass effect


Recommended Posts

Anyone know the Microsoft Neon style? They use the Glass effect, in windows 10 start menu and in some other apps. I would like that effect but not so dark.

 

EDIT:

Here is an example of the effect: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9NO5x0fuXc_OUs2dDRod185bzA/view?usp=sharing

All Microsoft is doing is introducing use of layers to the desktop screen. It will become more evident in Win 11. For now it can be best seen when opening Groove Music in Win10. One of the first apps that have modified their source code to take advantage of this new format;

I really don't know why this question hasn't been answered yet, so I'm going to go ahead and answer it.
Get these two plugins: Clamped Gaussian BlurChannel Operations


Step 1: Get two layers ready. The top one will be made transparent and the bottom will be blurred.

Example2.png.daee2af77c0f001a8dc6ac8d096b3573.png

 

Step 2: Select the top (glassy) layer and apply Channel Ops to set alpha to 210 (or subtract 45).

Example3.png.f7295049d65756c8a54aae0f789a4db8.png

 

Step 3: Select the bottom (blurry) layer and apply clamped Gaussian blur at 16 radius.

Example4.png.b917816aa0f3ee125b4e800f430c0331.png

 

Done. Comparison of the actual Aero blur and simulated Aero blur. (Some artifacts due to a sloppy job, but point proven.)

Example5.png.bc54f6c6037ab7607aa724bcd0378306.png

 

So again, I'm not sure why nobody could tell you to increase transparency on one layer and blur the other :)

Well this was not the actual effect we were looking for: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9NO5x0fuXc_OUs2dDRod185bzA/view?usp=sharing

It should have the gradiant effect.

You'll find all the plugins listed in the Plugin Index (link in my signature). Download the PDF and search using those ^^ keywords.
