I seem to be having some trouble getting the look I need from DOF. Below is a render I did with DOF enabled:
At first, everything looks fine, but, the corners of the glass box is also blurring, which is not what I want. I only need the background objects to be blurred. So then I looked for other ways of doing this. I settled with using the Depth pass and Defocus node. This is the result:
So great, the glass box is in focus and the background blurred. The problem now is that objects behind the glass box, like the objects in the background, isn’t blurred when looking at them through the glass box, which isn’t surprising considering how depth maps work,
So my question is, is there a way to use the Depth map with the other passes like glossy to get the result I want?
Here is my blend file help.blend
Using Blender 2.91.2
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all
