Best way to create a smokey background loop
on Oct 13, 2015 at 4:30:01 am

I need to create a smoke background loop for our keyed subjects to be seen in front of it.
An example of what we need is like this one:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6o9k5dy3yhrjk7a/smoke%20background.mov?dl=0

What is the best way to accomplish this in After Effects? Particle Playground or what? Plugin or even a smoke graphic with motion applied?
We want to have the ability to change a color, speed, density, and make a loopable video.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Particular [link] is my go-to particle system on Ae. It has a native "cloudlet" particle and a few smoke presets to get you started.
