NextPreviousHomeHow to create a blurred or fading edge?

I wanted to create text with from the center to the edge fading edge or border.

I thought I used the added picture (right lower corner) as a texture with the "NotLightened_Additive.cfx" effect.

It creates a fading edge only on the left side of the characters. Is there a better way?

The texture can be moved with the TEXTURE POSITION prop and scaled with the TEXTURE SIZE prop. This is however the same for all characters, so it's probably too big for the I and too small for the W.

I think I would render the text to a colour map layer, apply the Camera\CameraBlur effect to the camera of the colour map layer with a huge value of the FX BLUR FACTOR prop.

Tnx Michiel. It comes close!
I used a combination of the inflated text layer with the colourmap layer with the camera blurr
