- f stop parameter simply jumps from one value to another, no ramp ( means no continuous change from value 1 to value 2)
Hmmm, don't get that in my v2.5. How large is your scene, verts count?
Are you also using the Shift key for fine increments in value changes for the sliders?
is focal-length here also of any influence?
i suppose, that the effect only works with zoomed objective (like in foto-cameras)
No it works with default Focal Length or any zoomed length, but the expansion and other settings then may need adjusting to compensate for closeness to object.
What sort of distances are you working with, from camera to how far away?
Are you after distance blur or local blur?
What values are you using? Focus distance and F Stop? Expansion should be set as low as possible for normal DOF.
Perhaps try using the Alpine Template say clip 3, remove some of the other effects and then test with DOF.
