Find the Free Smoke FX pack on the CinePacks website. This is a free pack, so all you have to do is provide us with your email address so we can send you the download link. Once you receive the link in your inbox, download and unzip the folder of free video effects and transitions. This free pack includes 28 unique smoke overlays shot in 2K quality. Drag all of these video effects into Final Cut Pro.
Once all your video effects have been imported into Final Cut Pro, drag your chosen smoke effect into your timeline above your footage and change blend mode to “Add” or “Screen.”
Start experimenting with the different video effects in the Smoke FX free pack. Layer multiple smoke video effects together to create a much different look.
You can even alter the colors of the Smoke FX by clicking the Color icon at the top right of your screen and adjusting the color settings.
To customize the Smoke FX assets to your liking, you can scale and position the video effect as desired. Create a mask if needed by navigating to Effects and dragging the “Draw Mask” effect onto your smoke effect. Hit “B” on your keyboard to start drawing a mask around the area you want preserved (and add a good amount of Feather as well).
