I needed a smokemonster, so i dowloaded the "Get Lost" smokemonster, but that didnt really do the trick. What I need is a smokeball that just floats in the air. When you drag the smokeball, it leaves a trail of smoke behind it. I just cant figure out how to make the effect.
Anyone knows how to do it?

I know of this preset that I used in one of my videos that may help you. It is a fire preset but I bet you can probably edit it to make it smoke

http://fxhome.com/presets/ Search 'smoke' there are many different ones.

If you choose one and put it into the timeline multiple times, it could make it look thicker and more realistic.
