Focal Lock Addon for Blender


Anson Savage writes:

I have always struggled to find the perfect focal length for my Blender Projects. So, I set out to solve the problem. I teamed up with Nathan Craddock ( to produce this free (donate if you want) addon that allows Blender users to quickly find the focal length that works for them! I hope that this product can speed up your workflow like it has mine!

Special thanks to Nathan Dickson for his art ( and Gabe Schaffer ( for creating the music!

    Amazing! I was looking for a dolly zoom solution for blender and here it is! No more fiddling around with drivers.
    An idea fo a small feature: option to shift the focus slightly forward or back, after locking DOF to an object. Just throwing it out there ;)

    • Great suggestion! One thing that I do to solve that is I set the focus to be an empty. Then, you can set the mesh to be the parent of the empty and adjust the empty's location as necessary!
