I have been working on a digital painting by setting up the scene in 3D beforehand. I am currently stuck trying to get the blur and DoF settings right and with a believable scale.
My vision is have the camera focused on the ship as you will see in the picture I attach to this post. I want the ship to be clear but the second ship and the background to be blurred so as to give off the idea that the ship is moving at a fast rate of speed. I cannot seem to get the picture to look right. I was hoping someone a little more experienced could help me with my problem.
The camera lens is at 17mm, and the settings in the Defocus node are as such:
Bokeh: Octagonal Angle: 90
max blur 10.000
I am using the defocus filter in my nodes as well. Thanks.
