Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Depth of field, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- When it comes to adding a photographic…depth of field effect to our renders,…there are a number of options available…to us while rendering the field.…In this video, as we are in the V-Ray…physical camera chapter, we will look at…using camera options to both create…and control an in-render depth of field effect.…Now when looking to create effects such as…depth of field with the V-Ray physical camera…we do need to keep in mind that the choices we make…such as focal length of the lens, placement of the…camera, in-scene lighting and exposure…can all affect what we are ultimately able…to do with depth of field in the scene.…
For this reason, I just need to state here…that any numeric values we work with…in this video really are specific to this scene…and this shot, meaning if you are currently…following along using a scene of your own,…you will probably need to adapt the values…you use in order to suit the requirements…of your particular setup.…That having been said then, the first thing…we need to do here is make certain that…
