Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Displacing the smoke, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.

You can see the mountains art on the same layer,…you need the smoke to be on its own layer.…To add displacement to this, we're going to use some fractal noise.…First, add a new Solid. You can make it the size of the comp.…I'm making it black but…you can make it any color, we're going to change that with the noise anyway.…With that new solid selected, go up to the…top menu, choose Effect, Noise & Grain, and Fractal Noise.…Fractal noise can be used to create all…kinds of things; fire, mist, even rain and snow.…
