Usually this results in ugly glow effects in regions with great differences in depth. In such situations it is recommended to render in layers and apply several blurs. This is important if you want to comp cg elements into real footage or just want your cg shot to fit in with the rest.

It offers some extra functionality as well. Hmmm, interesting approach - thank you all frischpuft your answers! Obviously this is not possible. I was never even able to get a decent true blur in Frischluft.
You create a scene in a 3D application and render out two passes: Usually this results in ugly glow effects in regions with great differences in depth.

There's two ways to do that: I typically don't need to tweak the frischlurt values although if my layer has an alpha channel I usually disable "gamma correction" in the plugin. If you need high quality camera blurs with the flexibility of 2d post processing, Lenscare is a great choice. You can now select the area of the image you want in focus. By default the focal point is set to zero, meaning that everything that's white in the depthmatte will be sharp, rolling off to defocus towards the dark areas.

It needs a depth buffer for its calculations. Speed 'Out of Focus' effects is a speedy 2d blur and can compete with any existing solution.
Lenscare offer lots of options to adjust Lens Apertures to match specific looks. When looking through a blurred object the background is distorted due deptb that object.
Make sure your depthmatte shows a nice greyscale. That said, this blur bleed at the edges of overlapping objects is a problem with all the post DOF effects I'm aware of.
