Depth of Field in clip

Hi,
   just wondering how to animate Depth of Field in a clip? I have a static camera position where I'd like to animate a change in Depth of Field.

I've created a clip with two Photos in from the same viewpoint, with an aim to apply a different focal distance to each photo. Looks like I can only apply the DOF effect to the whole clip though - any suggestions on how to achieve what I'm after? Or is it a job for Photoshop?

(I'm in v2.1 for now)

Cheers,

Derek

There are little white circles next to each setting in the depth of field attribute box.  Clicking the setting you plan on animating will add a keyframe.  Add one key frame at the beginning, move to the time that you will change the depth of field, and click the circle again to add another keyframe.  Adjust this setting and when you move the timeline you should see the depth of field change relative to where you are on the timeline.
