Our scene is now almost complete.…The one thing we need to do is add a little life.…Now this is back in the days of Renaissance.…They didn't have central heating back in those days.…So they still relied on fire places. And those chimneys that came from those fire places…have to be spewing all kinds of smoke in the middle of the night so that those people can…sleep nice and comfortably.…So we are going to create some smoke coming out of all the smoke stacks.…Even though we don't see smoke stacks there is going to be some smoke coming out of them.…Now to do that we are going to create a smoke brush.…Now I am going to do that right from here, right here in our clouds file.…
Now what I am going to do is I am going to go in here, and I am going to look at the…channels of this clouds file.…I am going to look at the red, look at the green, and look at the blue.…Now the one that gave me the most contrast happens to be the red channel, which is where…the contrast information is for any file.…So I am going to go in there and use this particular channel as my source.…
