Use the old classic camera and multiple passes unfortunately.

try using the next build of 961 Khalid... no guarantees, but lots of FFX improvements in there...

Currently u can use volumetric mode in FiberFX to get DOF to work properly,
pixel filter mode is not compatible with DOF yet, i have reported a bug regarding that before:

but not fixed/implemented yet.

FiberFX User Manual, Page 30

Fiber Filter Pixel Filter > Etc Tab

"Save Z
Saves the depth buffer information in separate floating point buffer. When this is selected, Z buffer
values will not be written to the image filter buffer. Make sure you select a file format capable of
saving data in floating points."

if the FFX filter outputs Z output, can you then use it with the DPfilter, DOF node? That can do some pretty good things!

I guess, if you use the Z-Depth pass like Nuke or Fusion


(sorry for my English)

As of LW10.1 FiberFX Pixel Filter still doesn't work with DOF using the Perspective Camera. :bangwall:

Not that I would do DOF in LW, but it's nice to throw on to quickly test how DOF will look in comp.

The problem with that is I always get a setup looking EXACTLY how I want it in pixel filter mode, then I click it to "Volume Only" and it looks totally different.

I never like the way Volume Only looks.

Then you'll be glad to know they've done a lot of work on making the volumetric hair look like the pixel filter hair in 11.
