 aperture size value over 45.0

Hello,

I would like to have values greater than 45.0 allowed for aperture size = possible to calculate high resolution images with very strong dof effect. Currently I can reach needed results if the image resolution is less than 2000 pixels per dimension but higher resolution would be needed. I assume the calculation time extends but that is acceptable.

Best Regards,

Hi Thomas;

We might be able to fit this request into v3.0. One question I have for you - what would you require the aperture size limit to be for your high resolution work? Would you require double what is available (ie. 90), or less than that?

The reason I ask is because keeping the maximum too high will also increase the sensitivity of the slider - which can lead to some accidentally long rendertimes.

Posting any work would also be helpful for us to get a good idea.

-Richard

Hello Richard,

If the effect is in linear relation to the resolution then I think that if 45 is good for less than 2000 pix then for 4000 pix we would need over 90. Something between 100-150 should be enough. I agree about the slider sensitivy and I would suggest that the slider goes to 45, but the manual value input box could accept higher values, for example up to 150.

The ideal is something like an image with 1400*1400 pix resolution and DOF with aperture 45.0 and 0-100% DOF effect for example radial. That gives you the idea of the amount of blurriness that I would like to be able to have in 4000 pix image.

Best Regards, Tomas

Tomas,

I got good news for you: DOF PRO v3.0 is out. One of the new features is an extended aperture range. Wink
However, be warned, if you crank up the aperture to high values, your render time will increase substantially. Anyway, you asked for it - you have it.

Enjoy!
Martin
