Does finalDOF work with Mental Ray?

Hello BigPixolin,

finalDOF works with scanline and finalRender. Mental Ray does not support layered GBuffers so like many other effects it will not work.

That being said; The DOF of finalDOF will actually work OK with Mental Ray as it doesn't make use of Layered Gbuffers but the Mblur will not. So if its Only DOF in MR you are looking for then finalDOF may be a good solution for you. :)

Here are 2 quick examples of finalDOF with MR. Both with pretty heavy DOF as well as some Bokeh :D
