Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying depth of field, part of Production Rendering Techniques in Cinema 4D.
The beauty of shallow Depth of Field is what set off the digital SLR video revolution.…Shallow Depth of Field is what used to separate film from video and these days it's still…part of what separates just too perfect CG from photorealism.…CINEMA 4D's physical render engine allows us to accurately simulate the optics of a real-world camera.…It's what allows us to get realistic Depth of Field, Motion Blur, or even strange effects like Chromatic Aberration.…Here is a simple scene with some compact fluorescent light bulbs at different depths on a grid.…
If we render the scene, we see that it is perfectly crisp and clear.…Now, if we go into our Edit Render Settings, we can add some Depth of Field.…To do that, change your Renderer from the Standard Renderer to the Physical Renderer.…Once you've done that, activate Depth of Field and render again.…Notice that there is now blurring in our foreground and our background and the center most CFL is in focus.…And there are a couple of small points for you to remember.…
