Awesome! Testing this as we speak. Now I can have more control and customisability of my DOF and no more grainy computer killing DOF rendering! You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar! :D

I was just doing the Z-Depth Mask again in Daz Studio today and I figured something out that maybe you could add. It's about the transparency that likes to be visible in the renders even if you turn it down to 0%.

You can select the object and the surface you want invisible and apply the Uber Shader. Then turn ON Fantom (towards the bottom) and it will make it vanish. I don't think this will work with transmapped surfaces or partial transparent surfaces. But may be useful (for example) if you need one part of an outfit invisible.
