I have a Photoshop Live 3D object within my After Effects composition. The only problem is that it does not respond to the depth of field on my camera. Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks!

Hi, I don't understand your question?
first you say> have a Photoshop Live 3D object within my After Effects composition.
then you say>
The only problem is that it does not respond to the depth of field on my camera.
Please explain what your doing?
It sounds like your working with video still on your camera?

I created a Photoshop Live 3D file, which is just a simple sphere. I then imported that Photoshop Live 3D file into After Effects. Then, I placed it in my AE timeline which I have camera on. On my camera I have Dept of Field enabled and everything in my timeline responds to it except for the Photoshop Live 3D file.

After searching youtube and other places. I could not really find a solid solution and have come to the conclusion that there is no real solution.
