Hi everyone.
Just wondering if anyone has any simple tricks to disable depth of field on a layer by layer basis in AE? The only thing I can think of doing at the moment is precomping the layer with a duplicate camera linked via expressions and then switching off dof in the pre-comp.. though it seems a little cumbersome.

Ideas??

Thanks!

I think that might be the only way to do it, since you set your dof on the camera and not on the layers. Otherwise you could try to simulate dof by blurring layers and animating the blur.

It's only work if you'd rather be doing something else...
