Remember that not all features of the full 3Delight are available in DS.

Not quite true.  One can download the standalone 3DL for free and use ALL the features, even from DS.

That is an interresting feature for sure. You can fill a bug report and ask for the feature. Till then you can try to get it through scripted 3delight or an easier way would be to export to rib and modify it and render with external 3delight. I’m not 100% sure because I quickly read the 3delight doc but that should work

Can it be achieved with the shader mixer or shader builder? Or is it one of those things that could only be achieved with the scripted 3Delight?

Has anyone any clue where to find the ability to specify polygonal bokeh shapes in DS4.5?

None of those, AFAIK, currently. You can however write a C++ plug-in to access it, or make a feature request here at DAZ. I’m not positive but this thread at 3Delight seems to have the correct syntax: http://www.3delight.com/en/modules/PunBB/viewtopic.php?id=2978
Does anybody know what the address of the 3Delight bug-tracker is?

Thanks! I thought I had bookmarked this a few months ago, and I couldn’t find it through Google, but now I definitely bookmarked it.
