zBlur 2 is a post effect for Cinema 4D that creates a DOF effect with support for custom aperture shapes and highlight boosting. zBlur 2 plays nice with other post effects, such as Glow, Highlights, or Cel Renderer. zBlur 2 also supports depth maps with reflections and transparency information.
In addition to that zBlur 2 can desaturate or colorize images based on depth information.
zBlur 2 provides a fast and easy way to adjust settings with a tool named ZBI (zBlur Interactive). ZBI allows you to apply zBlur procesing to a pre-rendered image or image sequence. This allows you more freedom to experiment with settings without the overhead of re-rendering.
zBlur 2 does not require any additional modules, only the Cinema 4D core.
