Learn about setting depth of field effects to simulate camera focus.
- [Instructor] Here's a ruler…that I've built into Photoshop…and I've placed it on this table.…If we select it, you can see…that we can spin it around freely,…it's a separate object.…Now, the table has been photographed close up…and you see that the objects in the background…are out of focus…and in fact, the front of this pen in the foreground…is also out of focus.…We need to make the ruler match…the focus in the scene.…To do that, we switch to the Environment,…scroll right down to the bottom…and here we can check the Depth of Field button…and pop open its controls.…
We've got the focus range…and we've got the amount of blur.…If we click the target…you can see it pops up a little message…saying set focus point,…we select it, the target turns blue…and now we can choose where to set the point…of which the ruler is entirely in focus.…Looking at these glasses,…I reckon that's around about the number three.…So, we'll click on there…and we can't see any change at the moment.…
Let's boost the blur…to a very high amount…and let's open up our Render Preview…
