Static DoF in Skyrim SE?


I recently managed to migrate my old Skyrim mod setup to SE - surprisingly, with very little sacrifices. However, I`m a DoF fanatic and this is one thing where I`m stuck.


The native SE implementation is not great but not too bad either - functional. Something I could live with, however, I`m a weirdo who prefers "static" DoF instead of the usual one (where things in the background get blurry when you focus on something close by.) So basically, I`m after Static Mode from Dynavision.


Unfortunately, the Dyna`s author said it`s unlikely this mod will be ported any time soon. This prompted me to search around, and inevitably I landed in the ENB-land, previously avoided because I`m also a framerate fanatic. Once there, it wasn`t long before I discovered Marty McFly`s Advanced DoF. This thing completely blew me away - beyond beautiful -  sadly it also blew away my fps.


Since I`m a complete ENooB (same goes for Reshade/Sweet FX/etc) I have some questions:

-any idea on how to get that elusive static DoF in SE without need for ENB and its ilk?


-like I said, my fps tanked - I`m on i7 2600K+980Ti and dropped up to 20-30 fps depending on area/ambiance after enabling ENB. However I don`t really know what I`m doing so I just used some presets from Nexus...is it possible to use just the ADoF? I know there`s a "standalone" (for Reshade?). Would it be less fps-hungry on its own or is the DoF the main culprit?


Any suggestions/comments most appreciated.

      STEP does not recommend downloading the Skyrim Nexus version of ENBoost due to incorrect settings for STEP.
      Grab the latest binary from ENB Dev: https://enbdev.com/download_mod_tesskyrim.html
      Boris's VRAMSizeTest Tool for ENBoost: https://enbdev.com/download_vramsizetest.html
      For Skyrim run the DX9 version. For Windows 7, subtract 170 from the value the tool gives. For Windows 8/10, subtract 305 from the value the tool gives. Set VideoMemorySizeMb in the "Enblocal.ini" file to the resulting value.

      Looks like Boris has pretty much figured out his memory fix and released it on the nexus. I believe you still need ENB and then the file on the nexus is an extra INI that is dependent on your videocard.

      Powerful and highly configurable Post Processor with many advanced effects and fixes to the basic Skyrim rendering engine.
      You need these settings in your SkyrimPrefs.ini to make it work.

      EmbersXD seems to have built in compatibility for its meshes so ENB Light should not overwrite them (will need to hide or not install this meshes) Battle Ready Candlelight Fixes is completely overwritten by this mod (so hide these as well)
