Smoothen edges of color clusters similar to Eagle and 2xSaI, with scale factor and blending control. Work best with pixelart and flat shaded images.

- Blending : Effect blending with the original upscaled image.
- Scale Factor. Works best with integer values above 1. 2 gives maximum smoothness. Use 1 (no scale) for previously scaled images.
For better results I recommend changing the Sampling in the Runtime Properties to Point. This effect can also be stacked multiple times to give smooth 4x+ scaling, or be applied just once with 3x+ Scale Factor resulting in rounded pixels.
It uses a novel and simple method that I accidentally discovered, not as good as hqx family, but gives results comparable to Eagle and 2xSaI.
