Not via masking or using a ramped precomp, I know a guy who managed to create an adaptive depth of field without using any 3rd party software. He refuses to tell me how he did it but I have a general idea, im guessing its something to do with blending modes and highlights. If anyone can figure this out and even tell me how you did it I would appreciate it.

Johnny's right about posting: it's the only sure way to tell.
If you can't post, try giving AE's Compound Blur a shot.
Here, read up on it:
