.... ^^;; hello~ a newbie here....

are there any "better" methods for doing motion blur / depth of field in LW?? some plug-ins perhaps??
i've been having trouble with digital confusion DOF too... it creates too sharp a division....

i humbly ask for some help....

X~DOF,but that's like $200 but worth every penny.
Have you worked with the Focus_Null and Shift+F9 renders?
That seems to help a little.

I would advise to play around with the settings a little more before you rush to buy XDOF. Sure XDOF is a great plugin but the built in digital confusion is not that bad either. What do you mean by create too sharp a division?

XDOF 2 is good but has plugin issues which Lw DOF does not.

A compositing app like Fusion can handle this, also Defocus Dei appears to be good although I have not put it to the test much.
Fusion is very expensive btw(worth it though).
