Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding depth of field, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…One effect that can have a big impact on your scene is depth of field.…Now this simulates the depth of field that you get from a…camera where some things are in focus and others are out of focus.…Now we can simulate this in Maya in a couple of different ways.…So here I have a scene with our astronaut in front of his spaceship.…And if we do a quick render of this,…you'll see that, well, we get basically a simple scene.…So there's our basic render, in fact I'm going to go ahead and…save this in my render view by pressing this Keep Image tab here.…
Now if we want to put things out of focus, we can turn on depth of field.…The first way to do that is in the…camera, we go into View, Camera Attribute Editor, or select…our Camera and go into the editor, and then if…scroll down, you'll see a Depth of Field roll out.…Turn that on, and we can turn on Depth of Field.…And if you have Viewport 2.0 enabled, you should be able to see that in the scene.…Now this is basically just going to blur everything, because…we have a number of parameters that we need to set.…
