Imperfect Aperture Maps For Perfect Cgi Bokeh

On Sale! by Add Your Light in Addons


Achieve photorealism in your renderings!


Your DOF is too smooth!

Are you using Depth of field to bring more photorealism into your renderings? Chances are that you never knew that in most modern rendering engines, you can change the shape of your aperture for more interesting and realistic DOF, creating nice bokeh. But even then, mostly there aren´t any options on how to make the aperture shape even more realistic by adding dirt or chromatic aberration procedurally. There is one way though:


Aperture maps for your perfect 3D imperfect bokeh!

Just plug into your virtual camera one of my 95 different high-resolution aperture maps and enjoy beautiful bokeh that you would get from a real lens in photography!

The most comprehensive aperture maps collection...

I created most of the maps by looking at real-worl bokeh shapes and apertures, adding some extras like aperture shapes for Lens Baby or the Neptune Art Lens or going totally crazy with totally made up ones. This is the most comprehensive bokeh shape texture collection you can find on the net, so you have all the choices in the world to really give your renderings your individual taste!

Blender Camera Rig for Custom Bokeh included!

After unzipping Custom_Aperture_Camera-rig_v002.zip, open Custom_Aperture_Camera-rig_v002.blend, go to the shader of the "Custom Aperture Map" object and change the file in the image texture node. Play with the aperture of your "Bokeh Camera" and set the focal point, either by adjusting the position of the "Focal Point" object or setting the distance under "Depth of Field" of your camera.

Compatible with cycles, v-ray, corona renderer, octane, arnold, Frischluft Lenscare, DOF Pro and many more.

Lets stay in touch: tests my aperture maps, send me renderings and tell me what you think and what you need so I can improve this texture collection!
