Egg Sac DOF Render Problem...

Recommended Posts

I'm getting these weird artifacts when I try and render the image out with Depth of Field. Notice the two sacs in the back are blurred but have a black line near the edge.

 

Also, i tried rendering out another image with Depth of Field and a volumetric light in the foreground. Everything was blurred except the part of the image that was behind the volumetrics....

 

Any ideas why?

 

Using Pentium 4, 512 RAM, 2.56 Ghz and AM 10.5...

 

Thanks for any help!

Multi-pass works in the older versions of A:M too. You just have to turn it on in the registry(it doesn't work very well for animations, they tend to dift :D ).

I assume you're rendering on a blank background?

Try this...add a black plane in the background, so that it covers the camera area.

This used to work, but I haven't used the abuffer renderer seriously since 10.5 was in beta :o) .

Or you could use multipass if you have 10.5. It is better.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

I'll try the suggestions and see what happens. I had tried a multipass render and it made the image look offset (almost like a stereo image)...?

 

Thanks again!

you have to up your passes until the offset look goes away. I recommend a minimum of 25 passes for real good results.
