I could really do woth some more smoke plugins.

What I need is smoke coming out of the neck of a bottle. The 'whispy smoke' plugin is not quite right. Also it's not fadeable (I think I just made that word up).

Thanks

Not sure what type of smoke you mean. Is the billowing smoke I made any good (sorry MechaForce, totally forgot about changing the colour - will try to do soon). KermZ

The billowing is great but not quite right for the effect im after.

I need it to be more whispy and subtle.

The problem is that the bottle in the shot (that the smoke needs to emerge from) is tilted slightly to the left (as you are looking at it).

So the smoke needs to come out at an angle, then drift up.

Kermz, if you are going to give this a shot let me know and I will give you as much detail as I can. Maybe even a still of the shot im applying the effect to.

Thanks for your help.

Lorax, what you're describing sounds a lot like cigarette smoke, so maybe that can be used as the source for a plug-in smile
