Blitz Defocus is a blinkscript-powered z-defocus node I wrote as I was struggling finding a tool that would simulate the bokeh streching and cat-eye occlusion happening on anamorphic and retro lenses. So I made one :)
It uses Jedypod's Optical Defocus algorithm so you can use real camera settings such as aperture, f-stop and focal.
Bokeh can then be squashed and cat-eye/barn-door occluded as they stray away from the optic center.
Some little extra features such as lens breathing, chromatic spread, bokeh noise and enhancements can also be found..
2.0 : Handles Depth using Jedypod's OpticalZDefocus algorithm :)
6.3 : The gizmo is now split into two versions, a 'light' one that uses only one blinkscript node, and an 'advanced' one that mixes two blinkscript nodes (the standard one and and a softer one) to reduce potential aliasing in sharp bokeh shapes or low values.. - all configurable in the performance tab. It seems to be a pretty stable version for now - except for crashes that kept occuring on my end when processing high values occlusion through CPU..
6.4 : Fixing negative values in noise that crashed Nuke. Added option to simply use a gradient as defocus map.
