View Full Version : DoF control?
06-17-2004, 06:47 PM
Is there some kind of distance measure tool in Messiah?
I'm asking because it is kind of hard to tell the right focus distance for DoF when the camera is floating in space.
How do you solve your DoF animations? Or you you add it in post and keep your fingers off the Messiah DoF?

Distance between two points is a builtin expression.

Turn on the visibility of your Camera's Focal Distance channel. You should see a "D" hotspot extended from the camera. Click and drag it to the desired focal point. Alternatively, use a distance expression (from the Camera to a Null) to control the Focal Distance channel.

Thanks guys!!! :bounce:
The "D" is what I was looking for.
@Panikos: Can you give me the name of the expression? I might have overlooked it.
the expression is called:
(object, object, frame, frame)
Return the distance between two objects in local coordinates. You can enter a differant frame for each object.
