New Industry-Grade Smoke VFX: Steam Jets & Small Scale Smoke Plumes

New Industry-Grade Smoke VFX: Steam Jets & Small Scale Smoke Plumes

Our unrivaled Smoke Collections just got better (and smaller).

We're back at it again! This is the beginning of a very busy season for us, so get ready! We're dropping two new products today: Steam Jets and Small Scale Smoke Plumes!

We recently unveiled Large Scale Smoke Plumes a couple of weeks ago, but today's smokey clips have downsized. With these additions to our massive smoke inventory, we've got your back in any compositing situation you made find yourself in that needs VFX smoke stock footage.

Download Both Collections Now


Small Scale Smoke Plumes


Small Scale Smoke Plumes Specs:
  • 34 clips of Small Scale Smoke Plumes
  • Delivered in 2K and 4K/5K Pro 
  • Formats: 10-Bit ProRes 422 HQ (2K and 4K) and 5K R3D.
  • Color Space: Rec.709
We have vast amounts of larger smoke assets on our site, but none to suffice smaller-scale projects. So, we did what came naturally to us — we started a fire and filmed it!

These smoke clips come with three variations. First, we have even smaller plumes. You can find these clips inside the Collection titled "Extra Small". For the second variation, we used different wind intensities that affect the plume as it rises. Our third and final variation gives you different sized widths at the base of the smoke. Get a visual in the GIF below.
You could use these smaller-scale VFX elements for bonfires, campfires, or any type of fire that does not call for a huge base. 

Steam Jets


Steam Jets Specs:
  • 20 clips of Steam Jets
  • 3 angles: Front, Side, 3/4 Angle (in-between)
  • Delivered in 2K and 4K/5K Pro 
  • Formats: 12-Bit ProRes 4444 (2K and 4K) and 5K R3D.
  • Color Space: Rec.709
We know some of your scenes require different sizes of smoke, whether it's our Large Scale Smoke Plumes or Small Scale Smoke Plumes mentioned above, but you might need something even more intricate. That's where Steam Jets are ready to save the day and your comp. We've got you covered on the variations. We have burst and continuous jets of steam, while some steam varies in intensity. See what I mean in the GIF below.
This new Collection is perfect for steam pipes bursting, spaceship thrusters, and much more. I'll let your imagination do the rest of the talking.
