For me, Cinema 4D camera depth of field settings and how they relate to what is and isn’t blurred in a Cinema 4D scene was a little confusing. Front Blur, Rear Blur, Start and End, Target Distance and how they all work together isn’t immediately obvious. So for my benefit and for those of you who are also confused, I’ve created a Quick Reference Guide. This guide shows a top view of an actual Cinema 4D camera with extra visuals to help explain what the numbers in the Camera Depth Of Field dialog box are actually doing. There is also a black and white depth pass, where black indicates sharp focus, plus a full render with depth of field. Thanks to @bma_morris and @pariahrob for assistance.
