Howdy, does anyone know of a way to create the effect of a moving image projected on smoke or fog in After Effects?

Thanks in advance

try playing around with the displacement map effect and try using fractal noise on another layer as the displacement map -- note you'll need to pre-compose the layer with fractal noise on it and choose to 'move all attributes'

you might also try using that same fractal noise pre-comp as a track matte, and maybe play with the blending modes.

Nope. Smoke/fog is both ephemeral and three-dimensional. The images projected onto it reflect those qualities.

You would be much better off to shoot it as a practical effect. It won't be easy, but it will probably be easier than trying to do it with one guy and a piece of software.

As I see, Kevin beat me to this. You now have two different opinions. I wish you luck.

Neat, I'll have to check that out. Thanks.

Shooting the effect practically, is not really an option.
