Removed in 1.0

The Change Blur By () block was a Looks block and a Stack block. The block changes the blur effect of a sprite by the given value. The reason for it's removal is currently unknown, but the cause may have been the block not working correctly with transparent images. It is an Obsolete Block in Scratch 1.0 and above.

The cat sprite in Scratch 0.2 with a blur effect of 5.

Workaround

There is no workaround for the exact effect but a similar one can be pulled off using the ghost and pixelate effect.

change [ghost v] effect by (25) :: looks
change [pixelate v] effect by (25) :: looks
