d.o.f. blur-expression using lens-blur/fast-blur (without camera)
on Jun 11, 2019 at 6:36:13 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for an easy way to focus on objects in space without using 3D-mode. Let's say there are for objects and when I focus on object 1, I want object 2 to be blurry, 3 even more, 4 to be the blurriest.

This I want to do in a logical way and a way that does give me the option to make things more blurry afterwards.

I thought of making an expression like this:

Object 1 BLUR: 10-thisComp.layer("Object 2.").effect("Camera Lens Blur")("Blur Radius")
Object 2 BLUR: 10

But it turned out that in this specific case, where I have a blurriness of 10 and only two different objects it works out alright. I'd like it to be a bit more interactive. Anyone an idea what would work, without me using the camera?
