DOF doesn't seem to be rendering properly in Renderman 21.7


#1

So I’m trying to get some Depth of field in my image. I followed a tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHhgJFm0wuU&t=670s) where I linked a measure tool to my distance from camera node so wherever I move a locator it automatically updates the focus distance. But it seems to be off for some reason. The DOF is working, but it seems to be focusing behind the camera. I’ve also tried putting a locator where I want the focus to be and manually entering the distance into the focus distance that is specified in the Distance from Camera HUD. But that doesn’t seem to give me a correct result either.

Any ideas why this isn’t working correctly?
Thanks!

Turns out chromatic aberration throws the focus WAY off. Once I turned off chromatic aberration, the focus started behaving as expected.
