Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a depth of field effect, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
- When it comes to adding a photographic depth-of-field effect…to our renders,…there are a couple of options available to us…whilst rendering with V-Ray and SketchUp.…We could, for instance, render…out a Zed or Z depth channel that can be used…in a post-production application such as Photoshop…to add a depth-of-field effect after the fact,…as it were.…If for some reason though we find…that we need to add physically accurate depth-of-field…to our renders,…then we will instead want…to make use of the V-Ray Physical Camera's built-in…depth-of-field capabilities.…Of course, whenever we are looking…to create in-scene art in render effects such as this,…we do need to keep in mind that many…of the choices we make in connection…with our camera set-up,…such as the focal length of the lens,…placement of the camera in the scene,…as well as all of the scene's compositional, lighting,…and exposure requirements,…will all, to some extent, affect how we both create…and control depth-of-field in our scene.…
We should also note here that any numeric values…
