Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering bokeh (depth of field) effects, part of 3ds Max 2016 New Features.
- The physical camera can emulate…motion blur and depth of field effects…just like a real camera.…To achieve those effects,…you adjust the shutter speed and aperture…just like you would on a real camera.…I'll select the 3ds Max physical camera…and in the Modify panel, go to the Lens section…and at the bottom you'll see Enable Depth of Field.…And that's to achieve the bokeh, depth of field effect.…When you turn that on, you see attached…to the frustum are three planes.…
The frustum is this pyramid that extends out…from the camera that indicates…what is in the field of view of the camera.…And there are three planes attached to…the frustum now, the center one indicates…the distance at which something is…perfectly, sharply in focus.…And then there are two additional planes.…One close to the camera and one far out.…We can see that here, too.…Anything farther away then this outer most plane…will be out of focus.…And likewise, anything closer than this inner most plane…will also be out of focus.…
In this shot, I want the plant to be perfectly in focus…
