Sharper edges through ZDepth map in Photoshop?

Hi!

Please take a look at this video
http://vimeo.com/55768748#

This tool is only available for postproduction software and not Photoshop.
But it seems like this should be possible to do in Photoshop as well.

Anyone has a clue how I could use a ZDepth map and make the main image sharper?
Thanks!

if you mean to create focus you can use the z-depth as a mask for the layer you want to apply focus blur to, then switch the mask off and apply a "camera lens blur", set it to use layer mask as source and then tweak it around

No, I meant rather sharpen up everything. What seems to be shown in the video is that the image gets sharper.

I use to use the Highpass filter and then overlay that layer to sharpen up things. O I thought that there might be some ways to use a ZDepth map to do similar sharpening on images.

Of course, I could always solve it using a compositing software, but before I go that far, maybe there is a solution directly in Photoshop...
