Fov: 90 to 180

This camera node provides a fish-eye lens type view. The depth of field and aperture controls are similar to the standard perspective camera, but the fisheye camera also provides control over the field of view.


To use this camera, set the projection to Perspective and check Fisheye in the Arnold Tab

For more information on cameras, see the Camera Properties pages.

Fisheye Autocrop

Is activated when the camera Projection (In the View tab) is set to Perspective and Fisheye camera is enabled.

Crops a full-screen image from the center of the fisheye image to remove any white border.


Simulates the effect of camera exposure (in a non-physical way). Increasing this parameter by a value of one gives you one stop up (doubles the brightness). 


Depth Of Field

Enable Depth of Field

Focus Distance

This is the distance at which objects appear in perfect focus, for a non-zero aperture value.

Aperture Size

The radius of the aperture in world units. The smaller the aperture, the sharper the images (shallower depth of field). In the limit, a size of zero produces no depth of field blurring.

Aspect Ratio

Values bigger than one produce an elongated defocusing effect, reminiscent of an anamorphic lens, while a value less than one will squash it.


Aperture Blades

A number of blades (or polygon sides) of the polygonal aperture. 0 is considered a circle aperture

Aperture Blade Curvature

The curvature of the polygonal aperture sides. A value of 0 means hard straight sides. Increasing this value results in progressively more curved edges, all the way to 1.0 which produces a perfect disk. Negative values produce a "pinched" or star-shaped aperture.

Aperture Rotation

Rotates the aperture by the specified number of degrees.
