My depth of field isn't working at all. I have a camera and depth of field enabled and final quality enabled also.

Any suggestions? See image.


If it looks good, look at it.

How big is your comp, if we are looking at it 3.1% size, just curious?

Try adjusting the F-stop first(use lower numbers, like 4, 3, 2.8...), then the blur level 2nd. AE cameras mimic real life cameras and at wide angles, the depth of field is really deep.

To adjust the F-stop without having to open the camera dialogue, just twirl into the camera options and adjust the aperature to higher numbers, (10, 15....)
