Vray- D.o.F help

Postby solo » Tue Apr 14, 2009 1:34 pm

I am trying to get a grip of DOF in Vray and my tests have failed miserably.

Kwistenbiebel if you are around I could use your help as i've seen many examples of your work with vray using this feature so I'd assume you could give me some pointers.

Hi Pete,

Setting the DOF is not that easy. As I recall the DOF parameters need to be set in Feet.
So you need to convert your file units. I never used camera DOF that much in VfSU (because of that reason).
I got away with using the 'Depth Map' option in the Frame Buffer in many cases.

There was an interesting thread on the Asgvis forum some time ago . I'll try to find it and post the link here...

EDIT: Found it :) Look here: http://asgvis.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=90&topic=1986.0

No worries (as they say here :) ).
And Thomas is right (again :)): inches instead of feet.

*Off Topic*:
Oz is great. We enjoy it a lot, especially the weather, the beach/nature and the people.
Work is quite busy, so no going to beach for a short while now.
