It would be nice with the ability to load a custom image for the iris (aperture) in the Lens Blur filter. This would allow more realistic and artistic options for custom blur/bokeh shapes.Realistic bokeh is not a perfect clean shape. It is not perfectly symmetric and clean, and it can have pronounced or soft edges.---Example implementation: Example realistic images that that could be loaded:Example of an artistic bokeh shape:---Other possible (related) features:* Chromatic aberration settings.Example from DOF Pro plugin: http://www.dofpro.com/cagallery.htm* If you want to go all the way, and I consider this overkill, have different iris shape for "front" and "back" blur. At this point we could start saving the settings as lens profiles... Example of how front/back bokeh can differ: (image from http://jtra.cz/stuff/essays/bokeh/)
