Request: Depth of Field with Film Grain effect

I wonder if there are developers who would be interested to incorporate CeeJay’s Film Grain 1 / 2 into Light DOF and DOF shaders bundled with ReShade?

The idea is to get a more cinematic look and feel for Light DOF / DOF effects by having film grain applied over areas blurred by DOF (i.e. areas not blurred by DOF should not receive a film grain over them).

Thanks in advance!

You can apply a separate film grain shader to the whole image and it will look just fine, not to mention, more physically correct.

I just took this one of Bioshock 2 Remastered. I'm using DOF with FilmGrain2.

Sure, I can and actually tried it. But it doesn't give an effect I would like to achieve. Would still love to have film grain applied only to areas blurred by DOF (LightDOF and Matso DOF in particular). Which, in my opinion, should produce more cinematic look by making "out of focus" areas less static.

Nice shot as usual! But I would like to have "in focus" areas as clean as possible. I think you would also love such an effect when you see it in action ;)
