You could use adobe are to generate the frames and use them in a bitmap meter to achieve something similar, but it wouldn't be dynamic.

Also, another possibility would be using imagemagick and a powershell script to generate the frames. Just saying, never used imagemagick.
A full screen image manipulation is going to eat a lot of CPU cycles using Rainmeter. I wouldn't recommend it. :uhuh:

But to expand on D.C.'s comment about ImageMagick, you could look at how I use it in my SIGMA suite to blur skin backgrounds.

To do the variable blur would be fairly easy, but the load created on the CPU doing that to a full screen image, may cause lagging.
