Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding smoke with Smoque, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- Another type of environmental diffusion is smoke.…Smoke can be more like steam…or have a little bit of blackness to it…caused by something burning.…Tiffen has some digital filters here to help with this.…I have an image that should be a bit smoky.…Now, we were outdoors so it was keeping the smoke down,…but I'd like to emphasize the feeling…of something burning here in this old wood burning stove.…Let's make that a smart object and apply the Tiffen filter.…
I'll come here to the 'Diffusion' category,…and you notice that some other filters were applied…from the last look, so let's just clear that out.…In the 'Diffusion' category, I'll apply 'Smoque'.…In this case, it starts to brighten the image up a bit.…It looks like smoke moving through the scene.…Remember, as you apply these, while this is lightening,…you always have the ability to come over…and change the blending mode;…setting it to 'Darken' or 'Multiply'…if you would like to darken the scene down.…
Sometimes, I'll add two copies of the layer.…One to brighten and one to darken.…
