A Closer Look at SolidWorks 2010 (Beta) — 4: Decal and depth of field simulation in PhotoWorks 2010. In the latest release lets you digitally project 2D images on 3D parts, a handy tool for placing logos and text on your design. Depth of field simulation lets you deliberate blur objects in the distance, creating an effect that mimics out-of-focus objects.

  1. Decals and Depth of Field have been around for a long time in Photoworks, What’s new for 2010 is the ability to view decals in Photoview 360 and adjust the depth of field.
