Depth Blur

Depth blur is a fullscreen effect intended to replicate the visual acuity of a camera in the virtual environment. It is also known as depth of field, focus blur, or lens blur. It creates a focus-field, usually by means very similar to an alpha blend of the final image in the video buffer, which renders only objects at a given depth as solid. The others get rendered increasingly fuzzily as they move away from the target depth.
