i have it switched off, i really see no gain in it to make things that are sharp look blurry...

...i can imagine fun things you could do with it though... like... drink a Romulan Ale, put DOF value to crazy number ...because your drunk ;P

or add it to the rumble effect when your ship gets hit.

treating it more like FX and less as environment stuff might be a better use for that tech.

Just this month I bought a brand-new pc, but prior I had been playing since launch on an middle-aged pc with a poopy ATI card. Now with this new one I can amp everything up and am lovin' every bit of it, however Depth of Field is the only one that appears non-responsive when the settings are changed.

Since I've never been able to see it until now, can someone please explain what exactly it actually does so I'll recognize it when I see it?

I appreciate it.
