Chad Ashley from Greyscalegorilla explains “the correct workflow for doing Depth of Field and Motion Blur in After Effects…(that doesn’t) result in artifacts or other anomalies.”

“A WHOLE tutorial about the Depth Pass?”

Yes and no. This tutorial is about saving a TON of render time by NOT having to render your Depth of Field and Motion Blur in C4D’s Physical Renderer. With a couple of After Effect plugins and the correct workflow, you can save yourself potentially hours of rendering.
What you will learn:

  • How to add Motion Blur and Depth of Field to your C4D render in After Effects
  • What is needed out of a Depth Pass to achieve proper results with Frischluft Lenscare
  • What a “Position” pass or WPP is and how it can be used to generate a correct Depth pass
  • How to set up a multi-layer EXR output for After Effects
  • How to properly set up your After Effects comp with Frischluft Depth of Field and RSMB plugins
