Does anyone know how to reverse a particular effect?
I took a smoke effect from the Effects Builder, but instead of the smoke rising, I want it to get "sucked up" if you understand, how is that possible? I need it for a kind of possession effect like in Supernatural

Easy: make the clip run backwards.
Highlight the clip, enable time remapping, highlight the resulting keyframes, then right-click and in the resulting menu select Time Reverse Keyframes. Done!

Hmmm yea, but if I want to track it, it will be difficult to do it like that, because I would need to make it backwards, here is the effect i'm looking for:

I don't know if you can motion track somefthing like that. Doing it by hand would be pretty easy, though. The tricky part would be animating a mask around the mouth to make it look like the subject's inhaling it. And Mesh Warp might be useful, too.

Reverse the base footage, work the effect in and then reverse the final result back.
