Hi Frank, I know it's possible in images, but it's expensive for mobile. Could be a way to do it in text?

Thanks!

Blurring anything is just a matter of sampling several neighbor texels and averaging the result. So, texts can be treated the same as images.

Do you have any reference image of what you are trying to achieve, maybe I can give you some pointers.

Apparently it's not possible to animate the effects as distortion or glow. Or am I wrong?

Hi,
I was checking the video, and there are two things:

- The blur effect which can be simulated using the glow or making the "Extra Softness" of the character very wide and then animating the scale.y
- The distortion which can be done by applying a transform with a bit of subdivision (the "correct" way requires a custom shader for the distortion per pixel, but it can be simulated with a transform with a couple subdivisions)

At this moment, SmartEdge can only animate Position, Scale, Rotation and Alpha.
I created the animation sequence structure to be extendable, so its easy to add more targets later on, but for the first version I just created those.
I'm going to be adding more (and a general target for any script value: trello.com/c/H9AQehH9/10-animate-script-variables) As well as deformation types.

But for this first release, they are not available yet, sorry! I will add them as soon as the possible!
