The BCC Z-Blur filter uses a Z-map image to emulate a rack focus effect.

Move the focal plane through the source image, using the Z-map to control the
focus. Adjust the focal point, depth of field and blur parameters to finetune
the area of the image to blur.

You can also set a channel from the image clip, then use that channel to
control the z-blur effect. This type of effect is most noticeable in real life
with a long focal lens, such as a 105mm or greater zoom lens.

The built in PixelChooser, with integrated mocha planar tracking allows for
greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.
