I'm trying to get a good digital confusion effect on some cells, but I keep getting this weird artifact in the background, check out the two following pictures to see what I mean:

The main issue being that it won't work with the new AA system (adaptive sampling) which make it look this way. I've never tried using it with the older PLD style to see how it looks.

i don't have adaptive sampling turned on (lightwave 8.5).

Oh...heh, sorry. In that case I'm not sure as I've never been able to get a good result from it. I think, if you have the means, that using the extended RLA export with AE is much better for doing DOF.

There are other methods than digital confusion to get a blur effect...I'm not familiar with 8.5, but can you not just use the camera lens focus settings?
