You only can set the blur effect on a whole pane but not on a part of it.

What I want to do is to simulate the iOS and Mac OS X header… they blur their background which can scrolled under the header…take a look here: <>

Is it possible in JavaFX to show the same node (or pane) twice? So we could blur one copy and clip it :)

Best regards,
