Hello, I've had a hard time trying to get DoF to show up in photos. I've amped it up, tried different angles, messed around with different settings and nothing seems to work. Any advice/tips? I'm currently using the Black Dragon viewer.

In GENERAL (not Black Dragon specific) IF you are taking your screenshot at a high resolution (like 5000 or so pixels) you will need to make the shot look MUCH more blurry than you want your finished work to be (say at 2000 pixels or so.  For ME, some sliders don't seem to do anything while others --  COC and f-number make a great deal of difference.

I use Photoscape (free) to create DoF.

Wen I am having trouble getting DoF to look the way I want, I take a shot with no DoF. Then take a shot to capture depth, a gray scale image. I use the depth map in Photoshop where I have very detailed control over the DoF.

This is an example...

Black dragon viewer has built in DoF features that you can use inworld. Aside from that it's playing around with filters and blurs in different photo editing tools.
