ISO and Aperture Options.

ProDOF simulates the functions of a camera.  Decreasing the aperture will increase the amount of blur seen in a given shot.  Adjust the ISO changes the camera’s sensitivity to light, thus causing a brighter image.  Adjust the two sliders to change the quality of the blur.
