Film grain effect

The film grain special effect in ART is the best I have encountered. However, I’ve noticed that any blurring effect in the rest of the processing also blurs the grain. Would it be possible to change the order in which processing is applied, so that grain effect is applied at the end of the processing line?

In the ‘real world’, film grain wouldn’t be blurred by OOF areas, so making such a change would make this effect more realistic.

the grain effect is already applied at the end of the pipeline. What you are seeing is probably an optical illusion. It’s easy to check, just use the attached test image. E.g.:

Concerning the optical illusion. From a thread about the same topic a while ago.
