Hello!
I have a problem. I want to make a pistol shot as realistic as possible and that is adding muzzleflash and the SMOKE that comes out after. The problem is, i can't find it.. Neither in muzzle flash, particles etc.
I have VisionLab studio. Can someone help me?

You might also want to look into stock footage of smoke, and composite that on instead.
