I am using depth of field in camera. I have placed images in layers and while enabling depth of field, it shows small white colored circles in some part of the pic (see attached link), how to get rid of it ?

Not exactly sure what's causing this, but I'd guess it's the highlight controls under the depth of field settings. Change them back to their defaults: Diffraction: 0, Gain: 0, Threshold: 255, Saturation 0.

Then, if you want the bright highlights-depth-of-field effect, GRADUALLY tweak these numbers to get the desired effect.

If that's a PC project, if you post it(with a couple of the pictures) I'll open it up it up and see if the same things happen.


Don't want to say I'll open up the Mac project files, because I've discovered that Mac/PC people have different problems. But most likely a Mac guy will come along and take a look also.

Go to the camera in your timeline and open up the camera settings.

...That's assuming you're using CS5 or later (or maybe it was introduced in CS5.5? I'm not sure). Those additional depth of field adjustments didn't exist in earlier versions of After Effects.
