    Smoke out of bounding edges

    Joepiooo

      Hello,

       

      A few days ago I started with After Effects and I got the following problem.

      This smoke cloud is disapearing at the end of the effect space.

      How can I let the smoke go furder without enlarge the entire effect(smoke)?

       

      These are my layers.

          find yourself another smoke element, e.g. from Andrew Kramer's Action Essentials, stock footage libraries like Artbeats and so on and put it on top. Everything else is just trying to solve and unsolvable problem - where there is nothing, there can be nothing. Of course you can also try to simulate your own smoke with plug-.ins like Turbulence 4D or Trapcode Particular, but even so you will spendf a lot of time trying to make it look as real as the natural smoke...
