Blurry Text Reveal on Scroll

A blurry text reveal animation on scroll inspired by Rauno’s “Blur reveal”.

Some interesting experiments have been shared lately on X showing progressive blurs on all kinds of elements and this one by Rauno caught my eye:

It’s a stunning effect and I was wondering if something similar could be achieved by simply “unblurring” text while we scroll. I want to share these results with you today, hope you like them!

They don’t have the sophisticated mask effect but I like the results, especially when paired with a grainy background:

Animating filters can be a bit heavy on some machines so this is not perfect of course. But used in moderation on small texts can really contribute to nice visuals!

If you play with the initial values, you can create some interesting looks:

Enjoy and bring it to the next level!

Thanks for checking by.
