In my blend, I am trying to focus on a pile of doughnuts and then focus on them. While doing this, blurring the background and the side windows without losing some of the detail on them but making them quite blurred. How would I do this? I Have tried making an object a focus but it is not achieving my desired finish. This is a sort of blur I am looking for...

I will atatch my .blend file if you would like to see.

Add an empty and place it where you want to focus.

Set the empty as the focus object and lower the value of he F-stop to reduce the depth of field.

You might need to increase the number of samples to deal with noise.

  • $\begingroup$ One last question about this project which I am finding complicated is, how do I make it so that the rain drops from the particle system is on both of the sides but there are less inside than outside and so I can see them as well on the outside, because it looks a bit unrealistic with that much rain/condensation on the inside. Or if I need not because it looks fine then do tell me. $\endgroup$ – MasterMind Jul 21 '17 at 18:06
