Chapter 13. Air, Water, Smoke, and Clouds > The Fog, Smoke, or Mist Rolls In

The Fog, Smoke, or Mist Rolls In

Adding an animated layer of translucent clouds to a shot is easily enough done in After Effects. You can create the basic element by applying the Fractal Noise effect to a solid, and then use a blending mode such as Add or Screen to layer it in with the appropriate Opacity setting.

Be sure not to confuse the eminently useful Fractal Noise effect, found in the Noise & Grain category, with the far less useful (albeit pretty) Fractal effect in the Render category.
