BIG BLEEPING BLURS
Do you have a hankering for massive, screen-obscuring blurs? Well, these two shaders are for you - yes, you! - to enjoy in all their giant-ness. However, big blurs require a big GPU investment - each of these is about twice as intensive as a regular blur, but can be up to 8 times larger without any major loss in quality.

Features
- Comes in two flavors: horizontal, and vertical. I'm not making a single omnidirectional shader; you'll just have to stack them.
- Blur size can be adjusted, but there's a loss of quality at higher sizes. 400% is a good maximum size for most images.

I don't frequent these forums too often, but I'll try to reply to any questions, concerns, or critiques in a timely fashion. College may get in the way of that.

EDIT: You do not have to credit me if you use this shader in your project, as it's not exactly super-original or interesting. Wouldn't be bad, but not necessary.

Thank you, madame. This isn't exactly a super-original shader, so credit isn't necessary if you're using it in a game. (Probably should have included that in the original post, actually. Thank you for reminding me.)

Sorry to bump an older thread, but these are REALLY good, thank you for making a decent quality blur effect with a good range to play with. This is opening some awesome possibilities for a tool I'm working on.

These are quite impressive. And they certainly aren't as 'cpu destroying' as the author would have you believe; they are silky smooth on my HD4000 iGPU. Thanks, TheBen!

Re-uploaded it on Dropbox, see if it still works:

Jeez, it's been three years since I last posted this and people are still using it? That's great news.
