RealtimeBlurView

It’s just a realtime blurring overlay like iOS UIVisualEffectView.

IMG

Just put the view in the layout xml, no Java code is required.

// Views to be blurred
<ImageView ../>
<com.github.mmin18.widget.RealtimeBlurView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
app:realtimeBlurRadius="20dp"
app:realtimeOverlayColor="#8000" />
// Views above blurring overlay
<Button ../>

Try the sample apk: blurring.apk

Adding to project

Add dependencies in your build.gradle:

	dependencies {
compile 'com.github.mmin18:realtimeblurview:1.1.0'
}
android {
buildToolsVersion '24.0.2'                 // Use 23.0.3 or higher
defaultConfig {
minSdkVersion 15
renderscriptTargetApi 19
renderscriptSupportModeEnabled true    // Enable RS support
}
}

Add proguard rules if necessary:

-keep class android.support.v8.renderscript.** { *; }

Limitations

  • It will not work with SurfaceView / TextureView like VideoView, GoogleMapView

Performance

RealtimeBlurView use RenderScript to blur the bitmap, just like 500px-android-blur.

Everytime your window draw, it will render a blurred bitmap, so there is a performance cost. Set downsampleFactor>=4 will significantly reduce the render cost. However, if you just want to blur a static view, 500px-android-blur is good enough.

I’ve run the sample on some old phones like Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, it runs at full FPS. Here is a performance chart while scrolling the list on Nexus 5.
