Smoke Wisp or Ink Drop in Motion

I'm working on some HD Graphics video bumpers for a charity event and the Art Director has chosen an ink drop or smoke wisp print look. I'd like to match it somewhat in video. I found some composite videos from Digital Juice that would fit the bill BUT I haven't got $250 bucks to blow on a charity project. Wondering if Apple Motion could achieve the look with it's content. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
(Here's a reference of the look)

OK skip it... just spent 2 hours jerking thru the smoke emitter world.
Ended up making a alpha movie and placing it in with white bkg. and speed variations... ect. Now on to the halftone stuff. Anybody got any better ideas please chime in.

I think you will find a use for the $250 content outside of this project and it will be money well spent. As for the smoke...I would check out one that comes with Motion. Go to the Library tab, Content, Backgrounds, Smoke.mov. You'll need to slow it down but it could do the job.

As for the Halftone stuff, you have a halftone filter and it can be found in the Filters section in the Stylize folder.

Hope this helps and best of luck.

Check pond5.com I did a very quick search and found this:

This particular one is SD.. but it's $15.

The smoke.mov clip that comes with Motion for free looks very similar. The advantage to the Compositors Toolkits is that they are pre-keyed.

Thanks Andrew, I haven't used Pond before and there's a HD clip that works for 10 bucks. Thanks for helping out.
