Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

The instruction says: This depth of field method replaces Circle DOF as the default cinematic method used in Unreal Engine 4, version 4.20. It is enabled by default on supported hardware

And in the subject: Cinematic Depth of Field is enabled by default and replaces the current selection for the Circle DoF method in the Camera and Post Process settings.

If you've selected Circle DOF in the image you show, then Yes that is the new Cinematic (Circle) DOF method.

In the setting, yes the default is set to Bokeh but it's not automatically enabled because you have to apply a Bokeh Shape texture and set a Bokeh Size to actually use it. Keep in mind that in a future engine version (4.21 or 4.22 most likely) that Bokeh DOF will be deprecated. The goal is to have only two DOF methods; one for Mobile (Gaussian) and one for Desktop/Console (Cinematic/Circle DOF).

The old Circle DOF method is going to go away at some point too, which right now Cinematic replaces.

Is cinematic depth of field not supposed to support alpha? I opened a new 4.20 project and tested it on the standard meshes (chair, table etc). But it does not work for the statue which has transparency
