DOF with video in a 3d space
on Dec 3, 2005 at 3:55:31 pm


I'm very new to AE and it's opening whole new world to me.

I've created a single comp with a bunch of video files (talking heads) arranged on the same y plane with different x and z values. i've got the camera flying around between the clips (the clips don't move in the 3d space) to see and hear what the guys are saying in sequence and it seems to work well.

To give you all an idea of what i mean I've stuck up a screenshot at...

But there appears to be no depth of feild (i've turned it on in the camera properties) so the results that i'm getting are good but a little unrealistic. I was kind of expecting some blurring as you moved away from the clips etc.

Anyone out there got any (simple) suggestions for what I'm doing wrong. I've googled etc and am more confused than ever. having a look at a couple of plugins but most of it might have well been written in greek...

any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated
