The model in the reference file is really small. I can't seem to get the camera to focus like the video is explaining.

@lilgreasyelf: Which property are you using to control the depth of field, f-stop or radius?

@mantissa: Thanks for the reply and help. Sorry I didn't see this until now. I've actually moved on/back to a different tutorial because I think this might be past my skill level right now. But when I get back here, I'll get back to you!

I'm not sure how I can enable the depth of field on the final render. The camara have 80 focal lenght setting, the most distante objects is blured 3d view port but at the final render the depth of field doesn't seem's to work.

@ald.lopez: I think you need to use the compositor. The post shows how.

@2:43 you state that you have your camera's rotation set to rotate around the selected object. Where do you set that?

as it has been reported in other forums, the ctrl alt 0 doesn't seem to work, at least not in 2.91
...or I'm making a mistake ;)
