View Full Version : Dp DoF

04-19-2017, 07:20 PM

Working on a project where I wanted to emply DP's DOF setup. I'm not having any results. (except for a general blurring of the scene slightly at times).

Making a generic scene with a 1m sphere at origin, and another 1m sphere offset 2m behind it and to the left (so both are visible).

Here are the steps I'm taking.

1) Open, Effects/Processing, add Node Image filter to the Image filter tab.
2) Jump into the Node editor.
3) Add the render buffer node and the DOF node.
4) attach Color from the Render Buffer node to the Color of the DOF node.
5) attach Depth from the Render Buffer node to the Depth of the DOF node.
6) attack Color from the DOF node to the ImageFilter.

Setup looks like the image attached.


When I render anything, there is no DoF in the rendered image. I have also watched and followed Erikalst's youtube video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Myn62d_KYjM ) to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious, but still end up with no DoF.

What am I doing wrong here?

any insight.. thank you.

Did you check the Depth Buffer in the root panel?

Yep. as Denis says, check the root panel by double clicking the ImageFilter node:


DP DOF tends to work better when Depth Buffer AA is enabled.
