Depth of field effect

Postby gmaisg » Fri Dec 06, 2002 11:35 am

Does anyone knows how to render a scene with an effect of depth of field, that is, objects that would be away from the camera would be out of focus. I tried to use the Field button, but the effect was not noticeble. Thanks if anyone can help me.

Hi

Field is not the way to do it.

Try a sequence plugin from
http://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~mein/blender/plugins/

cheers

Hi t_revs, i have downloaded the plugins, both the source and precompiled for windows, but how do i use them. Do i unpack the source to the blender plugins directory and the precompiled dll to the windows directory? Can you help me?

Thanks

You can do begginer questions like this one in the elysiun forum http://www.elysiun.com :wink:
This site is mainly for development.

To track the camera (or anything) to another object, select the camera press SHIFT, select the target and press CTRL+T.

May be do you need to remove rotation of the camera:
Select the camera and press ALT+R

In the animation button's window F7 you can find some X Y Z button's to diferent types of tracking.

See you.
Caronte.
