Do you want moving smoking or static fog like.
For static fog like...may Edit header/Effects/Video Effects/Render/Ramp. Not sure if Ramp is going to be a problem later, but.....
For moving smoking, sort of like this one....
Clip on Video 1
Graphic Animated Objects/Smoke on Video 2 (since swf, adjust swf duration in Time Stretch if necessary)
a. Select Video 2 content...Properties Palette/Motion Panel expanded and jack up the Scale so that the "Smoke"
is Full Frame at the Start of the timeline..1000% might be reasonable.
b. Select Video 2 content...Properties Palette/Opacity Panel expanded and decrease the Opacity from 100% to about
25% at the start of the Timeline.
c. Render the Timeline content to get the best possible preview. Smoke can be slowed, speeded up, core moved to best location
Those were my first impressions.
Thnaks as always for the speedy reply.. Moving smoke would be ideal but not sure what I am puting on video 2. How do I access the .swf file that you refer to as
Graphic Animated Objects/Smoke on Video 2
In Premiere Elements 10, please go to
then in row below to Clip Art
then in row below to Filter by: Animated Objects
scroll to Smoke
Drag from the Smoke thumbnail to Video Track 2, placing it directly above the Video 1 content.
Explore and experiment with settings. Outcome can vary depending the Scale and Opacity settings for Video Track 2 Smoke
creating the moving smoke for the Video Track 1 content.
Worked like a charm. Thanks ATR!
Thanks for the wonderful news that the Premiere Elements smoke clip art worked to create the effect that you sought.
Glad we could do that with Premiere Elements.
Always, best wishes.
ATR, Just out of curiosity, is there any way to do something similar with fire as opposed to smoke.That didn't seem to be an option in that animated section.
Yup there it is. Thought it would have been closer to the smoke. (when there's smoke there is fire) Sorry I jumped the gun. I just tried it out and it seems pretty realistic.
Thanks for the good news.
Although there are a lot of effects that many prefer to create in Photoshop Elements and import into Premiere Elements, the effects potential within Premiere Elements itself should not be overlooked.
