Hi guys,
I'm looking for a preset of a black orb that I can duplicate (the plan is to have these orbs gradually float by and follow a person accumulating until he has a 'swarm' of orbs following him.

I am also looking for a smoke or mist like effect that is black and has tendrils that can sort of swirl around the orbs in a 'dark magic' type feel.

So yeah, if any of that made sense to you and you know of something or how to make something that can help me please let me know!

Thanks!

You can make this effect with one or more presets.

Ex: you make a little puff of smoke a bit.
Then you make a big puff of smoke for an accumulation.
Use the "blur gaussian" for a better result.

wes dude the fxhome has found a good preset.
