Anamorphic bokeh with Trapcode Particular

Postby BDboY on 10/10/2019, 7:31 am

Hi guys !!

I'm working on a commercial right now in which I'm using A LOT Trapcode Particular.
This commercial is shot with anamorphic lenses, and I was sure Particular was able to generate DOF with an editable bokeh aspect ratio... I was wrong...

Right now, the only way I'm thinking is to simulate a depth map by using the visibility option with my particules colored in white, and then use this map either with Frischluft DOF or the lens blur from AE. However, I'm not sure this trick will work and I think it would be very time consuming.

So I was wondering if anyone here knew another way of simulating oval anamorphic bokeh with Particular pleaaase !
Thank you all ;)

Thanks for you answer, however I don't see an option to modify the aspect ratio of the bokeh... :s
And I would still need to generate that depth map ! :(
