Fast Bokeh Pro is a plug-in for After Effects that creates a smooth Depth of Field bokeh blur using a Depth Map. It’s very fast, handles edges properly and easy to use.
Why Another Lens Blur Plug-in?
Fast Bokeh Pro is different from all the other Lens Blur plug-ins out there because of the following features:
- Very fast and blur radius independent.
- Handles edges properly.
- Gaussian (Faster) or Spherical (HQ) Bokeh Blur
Blur Radius Independent
Fast Bokeh’s performance only depends on the image size, but not the amount of blur applied, so you can expect a near-constant render performance.
No Hard Edges
Object boundaries are expanded and edges are handled properly as expected. There are still limits because the plug-in doesn’t have information about occluded objects in the render, but it does a reasonable job in avoiding hard edges and halos as much as possible.
Smooth Bokeh Blur
This plug-in creates a smooth Gaussian-like fast blur or Spherical shaped Bokeh Blur. Gaussian-like Aperture Blur is lightning quick while Spherical shaped Aperture Blur is very high quality yet still reasonably quick.
Spherical Bokeh Blur while not as fast as Gaussian, is still radius independent and very performant.
32 bit colors
32 bpc is not only supported, but also recommended for best quality.
