In this video, learn how to control depth of field.
- [Narrator] The key to convincing emulation…of close-up photography is depth of field.…Artistic application of distance-based blur or bokeh…gives the rendering plausibility.…In addition to its traditional application…of directing the attention of the audience.…Many renderers model bokeh directly…based on the size of a virtual lens iris or aperture.…For 3D renderers that don't offer a physical aperture size,…you can usually get satisfactory results…once you understand these principles.…
The amount of blur is determined by aperture size.…A larger aperture gives more blur.…The maximum aperture radius for a real-world camera lens…is in the range of a few centimeters.…Apertures size also controls the range of distances…that will be in focus.…This is the apodemus depth of field.…A larger aperture has a shallower field,…a more restricted range of distances are in focus.…In the real-world camera aperture affects…both exposure and bokeh but usually in 3D programs…these affects are controlled with separate attributes.…
