zDOF: A Fast, Physically Accurate Algorithm for Simulating Depth-of-Field Effects in Synthetic Images Using Z-Buffers
A two-step image processing technique for accurately simulating depth-of-field effects. Step one spreads pixels out based on depth and camera parameters. Step two normalizes pixel intensities from accumulated pixel coverage.
