Dissolving image to smoke

Hi,

I would like to animate a logo by having it dissolve to smoke that then melts away.

The tricky thing is I want it to dissolve into smoke in the shape of the logo that was there. I tried creating a mask hoping it would just mask out everything but the shape of the smoke behind it, but it just dumps it anywhere. Essentially I need to fill my mask with smoke, but seem to only be able to fill it with a gradient

i am very new to motion and just finding my way by learning as I go - apologies if I am making a simple mistake.

Any thoughts?

To feel your logo with smoke you will need to to an image mask. To learn more about image mask check out my Creating a Hologram video tutorial. In the middle of the tutorial I cover image masks.

A plug-in you should take a look at that may be of interest is http://idustrialrevolution.com/idrplugins/particlemetrix/index.html

Best of luck and hope this helps.

Eve,

You could do this with with a replicator, but your project will take forever to render.
Take a look at my ParticleMetrix plugin that Stephen suggested.
