Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating smoke using displacement, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
So everything is looking good, but I still haven't dealt with the smoke coming…up from the chimney.…I'm going to find and turn on the Smoke layer, and let's zoom in on it.…Let's scrub through the Timeline.…I would like the smoke to start when it starts snowing.…I'm going to open the Property panel for the Smoke layer and then press T to…solo the opacity and set a 0% keyframe at about frame 160.…Right around frame 200, I want the smoke to be 100%.…
The smoke doesn't look very good there;…it's too dark. But we're going to color correct it in After Effects.…So go up to the top menu, Effect > Color Correction > Curves.…With Curves open, I'm going to curve up the midtones so that it lightens…the smoke considerably.…The curve has added a lot of saturation to the smoke, so I'm going to go to…Color Correction > Hue/Saturation and desaturate it so that it looks grayer.…Now I'll scrub through and see how the smoke looks later on.…
Now it looks too light.…I need to keyframe both the Hue/Saturation property and the curve I just applied.…
