well in general what I do for that kind of thing is employ a pencil or brush in a high value (white, grey or hue for colored smoke) on a dark background
and rather than work on a separate layer, work on a copy of the background with the smoke sketch
then selecting a really big brush employ the blur tool, and the smudge tool
its massive compute cycles, alot of data ends up being crunched
some trial and error is obviously involved
you maywell screw up the background if it isn't uniform
but afterwords you can erase large portions of it leaving just the smoke areas and layer it above the original background
this also works well for fake burled walnut, mottled backgrounds ect.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of haXors,
I will fear no evil: for my boxen is strong; my scanners updated and my scripts disabled.
Let them preparest an exploit before me in the presence of mine enemies
my polymorphism patch protectest me and if my cup runneth over, they will still not gain root
