How “Scale Project” can help with DOF

By now i guess at least some of you had the chance to play with Cinema4D’s new Physical Renderer. One thing most of you will do, i assume, is to render your old C4D project files to see how shiny they look now. You’ll recognize that in most cases your project is out of units (well most of mine was…). But it’s pretty simple to fix that issues.

If you encounter that your Depth Of Field is nearly not visible don’t just lower your F-Stop value to death (0,001 or so). Do the following:

- Go to Edit > Scale Project

- Set the “Target Scale” from Centimeters to Millimeters

- Render

Here you can see a before and after render, note that the F-Stop didn’t change.
