Hi!

I have a problem, I'd like to do an effects like this https://vimeo.com/33690610 (00:21), so I want to create a similar thing namely I want to drain an object with realistic smoke.

How can I do it?


Thank u in advance!

The effect itself doesn't look very complicated, just executed & composited well. That's stock footage of either ink or smoke. It was positioned and possibly masked so it appears as it came out of the object. The draining could be accomplished with a few keyframes and a masked solid.

There are a few ways of creating ink/smoke in AE, if you really want to go that route, using particle emitters. Red Giant has some free presets created by users for ink and smoke that you might be able to customize for your own use, they all would require trapcode particular though.
