I've implemented a Video Post plugin that prints information above the render, like a watermark.
It works pretty well, but when I add DOF to the scene, my watermarks all get blurred. I can see it blurs together with the Back Blur, if I turn back blur off, my watermark keeps intact.

The native watermark effect works well with DOF, it does not blu. Looks like it's a Video Post as well, so there must be a trick to keep it off DOF blur.

Things I tried with no success:
- Set the priority to be very low, like C4DPL_INIT_PRIORITY_PLUGINS-100000, no change
- Set depth = 0.0 on ExecutePixel on all my watermarked area

in which part of the call sequence are you applying your watermark?

Couldn't you do it, after the frame got rendered?

If i do it after VIDEOPOSTCALL_SUBFRAME or VIDEOPOSTCALL_FRAME the plugin crashes.

But after VIDEOPOSTCALL_RENDER it works as expected, no bur!
