I would like to request a thick low ground fog as a preset. Something like the fog covering the ground inside the gaint worm(I don't know it's name) in The Empire Strikes Back. Basicly so you can't see the ground.

I don't own Premire or anything like that.

I bet if you changed the speed and color of Tarn's dust storm preset you could make some nice fog. Just a suggestion.

I tried to just have a rectangle emitter and the smoke textures. I just changed the speed and sice a little and it worked quite well. It became some sort of grey mud that covered about 1/3 of the screen. And adjust the opacity , you want it to go transparent just in the end.

Lithium Kraft - Yeah, I've been adjusting the 'dust storm' preset and it does work quite well. I have trouble tweaking the speed of the whole effect. No matter what I do it just looks too fast for fog. Just a matter of getting to know how the parameters work I suppose.
