Can anyone recommend a good pack of videos of smoke and dust with alpha channels? I've seen things like the Video Copilot Action Essentials and others that focus on explosions and big detonations, but I'm looking for something with subtle minimal effects, small dust clouds settling, dust particles floating, etc. little puffs for collisions, drop-ins, and what not. I was sure there'd be a few good kits like this out there but haven't been able to find anything thus far besides buying them one at a time off of a stock site.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Must it be actual video? I believe I recall seeing some lovely presets for particular that produced some of what you're asking about. Heck, I've seen some great dust and smoke created with clever use of Fractal Noise!
