[How To] Gaussian Blur/Glow Effect?

New Here ,

Recently switched from Procreate due to a hardware change and purchased full Adobe suite. I'm finding that even though Fresco is the closest competitor to Procreate, it seems to be lacking noticeably. One of my few nuances is the inability to create a uniform, clean blur or gradient via layer effects or something similar. Any workaround for this that doesn't include constantly exporting to multiple programs?

Just use a clipping mask and soft round brush to make clean shading around the edge of something

Where you say Lacking, I say Differenciates. I like that Fresco is not an exact copy of Procreate and I hope they continue to be clearly separate programs, created by different businesses.
If you use live brushes you should be able to get a good gradient or blur between two colours through painting each colour so it connects. Fresco also has a multi-colour selector option in the eye-dropper which gives a good/interesting flow between colours.

So, what I hear you saying is, no, Adobe Fresco doesn't have a guassian blur feature? I would also call that 'lacking' a feature. As in, this feature doesnt exist in the tool. That's kind of the definition of lacking. I'm not finding live brush water colors to look anything like gaussian blur.

If someone does know a good simulation of a guassian blur in Fresco, please share. I'm still learning the tool.

Yeah, I would call it lacking as well, and no amount of "PR speak" is going to change that. I still haven't found a solution either, so as far as I can tell, it just doesn't exist. And no, using a "giant smudge tool" isn't the same, for whoever actually thought that was a good answer lol

I agree. Let's call it like it sis, and a blurr is not re-investing the wheel or Copying Procreate. It's been an essential feature in apps like Adobe Photoshop for decades. They need dope Basic Effects so the apps is a ll in one,, why Not! I would use it and not have to open Procreate to do some/swap back to Fresco ((imports) to continue. It just makes sense.

If you have the full Adobe Suite, I suggest you use Photoshop... While over-engineered for simply drawing, etc, Photoshop has all the tools you'll ever need for that and more...
