Smooth Blankets

Want to simulate a calm, slow moving, thick haze? Choose a ProFog composite from the Smooth category to create a thick London fog or a hazy Film Noire look. Layering the Smooth fog layers can make them appear denser and more ominous.

Wispy and Ghostly

Add fast moving, streaky clouds to your footage by choosing a file from the Wispy category. These wispy clouds have more defined and distinct lines and streaks, so they can be layered to create more depth in your fog.

Final Touches

Now for some final touches. Located in the FCPX Effects library is the PROFOG Blending Tool which will enhance your composite blend so you can match the fog with your original media. Click and drag the Blending Tool directly on top of your fog composite. Then go to the inspector window. Start by selecting a fog color. After choosing a color begin adjusting the color intensity. Next adjust the lights, shadows, mids, and highlights of the fog composite. Underneath the blur slider will help as another blend option depending on what kind of look you going for. Lastly you can adjust the scale, vertical and horizontal flip. The Invert Dust check box acts more like a stylistic choice rather than a realistic choice.
