For a fog plugin your really gonna need a alpha channel. Hopefully you exported from max as a series of alpha tiffs (or alpha somethings) otherwise you'll probably have to render it again. Once you have a set of alpha tiffs its easy to make it into a plugin. Just download the Plugger from the plugins section, run it, and follow the instructions. You will want to select the "Overlay Ink" type when it asks

Add Pin, can be used to remove black from the background, but really it is designed for Light Effects. As a result, Add Pin will give your plug-in a kind of glowing effect; not ideal for a fog plug-in. Also, unless you use alpha channels, you will not have the ability to adjust transparency.
Hopefully you already rendered it with an alpha channel, but if not, you really should.
