Morning,

Please can anyone let me know how to add steam to a bath (that should be hot)

I have a dog in a bath... and he didnt like water at the shoot so I NOW need to make him look like he's in a hot tub!

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

In the past I have either used stock footage of clouds/mist, or generated them myself using the fractal noise effect (should be lots of demos you can find). Then, you can adjust the transfer mode of the layers (probably to screen) to make them semi-transparent and, if your camera is moving, you may have to motion track the background, apply the track to a null, and parent the cloud layers to the null: this way they'll stay in the same place and look more natural.

If you can shoot the same bathtub filled with steaming hot water- no dog, it would be a good reference.

Hi there,

You can use CC Particle World to create steam, it's a fantastic plugin and comes free with AE. I have a tutorial on setting up Particle World here. this one is more for fire and smoke but once you've gone through the tutorial you should be confident enough with it to create your own steam affect!

Particle systems 2, perfect for this do it all the time. Start with big faded spheres and have a play.
