Blur and Levels Trick

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to apply in Glyphs something like this blur and levels trick from After Effects – check this video (first 3 min.): 5 Best Ways to Use Blur Creatively in After Effects - YouTube

I know the round corners filter works in a similar way, but the blur/levels combo really gives it a nice natural worn effect and an easy way to control the amount. Also the “sticky” look between shapes is natural looking and hard to achieve otherwise.

That would need a raster image, then apply all the same effects and trace it again. Specifically for the merge/sticky effect, it is not possible (or at least I don’t know how) to do with paths directly.
