grease pencil experiment 4 - depth of field

Nikolaus Gradwohl2019-07-13T10:01:15+00:00

While experimenting with grease pencil animation scripted in python, i recognized that the grease pencil shapes also affect the depth map - so they can be used to change the DoF using the defocus node in the compositor. I was really pleasantly surprised - this opens a whole lot of new possibilities :-)
