Can you show a picture of the effect your trying to achieve, or at least explain it in more detail?

Indeed, a picture or more detailed description of what you are after would be most helpful. Generally the only acceptable way to do wind effects is with a large fan (wind generator) on set. But perhaps you have some sort of visual effect in mind, rather than actual wind.

What are you trying to acomplish? If you want someones hair blowing, obviously you'd need an on screen fan, but if your looking for leaves or something blowing in the wind, you could talk to someone who can draw, so you can make the leaves a particle texture, or have someone who can work a 3d program help you out. Besides that I'm not sure what your asking.

Here's what I'm talking about. Watch at 0:28 that's the effect I'm trying to create but don't know where to start on Effects Lab.
