BackdropFilter class

A widget that applies a filter to the existing painted content and then paints child.

The filter will be applied to all the area within its parent or ancestor widget's clip. If there's no clip, the filter will be applied to the full screen.

If the BackdropFilter needs to be applied to an area that exactly matches its child, wraps the BackdropFilter with a clip widget that clips exactly to that child.
Stack(
  fit: StackFit.expand,
  children: <Widget>[
    Text('0' * 10000),
    Center(
      child: ClipRect(  // <-- clips to the 200x200 [Container] below
        child: BackdropFilter(
          filter: ui.ImageFilter.blur(
            sigmaX: 5.0,
            sigmaY: 5.0,
          ),
          child: Container(
            alignment: Alignment.center,
            width: 200.0,
            height: 200.0,
            child: Text('Hello World'),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    ),
  ],
)

This effect is relatively expensive, especially if the filter is non-local, such as a blur.
