Is it possible to make a see through rect?

How do you make a see though rectangle that’s blurry?

This?

function draw()
    background(150)
    sprite("Planet Cute:Character Boy",410,420)
    strokeWidth(2)
    stroke(0)
    fill(115, 180, 198, 175) --set last number low for transparency
    rect(355,350,100,100) 
end

@Ignatz yeah

@Ignatz it’s still not blurry

@yojimbo2000 it’s sorta what I’m looking for. I am looking for a iOS style one

See

That one can look “iOS style”. Do a few passes with a slightly tinted react over top and you have a blurred surface perfect for text, nearly identical to the Notification Center. It works especially efficiently if reducing the size and then blowing it up. That’s @yojimbo2000 who made/ported those shaders, so thank him :slight_smile:
