Where can I get the grayscale jpg from. When I go to download the project file, I only get the smoke element, not the grayscale jpg.

Do the smoke elements need to be alpha channels? I am 6 minutes into the tutorial an noticed my photos animate, but I still have white and gray smoke on a black background.

Great stuff, looking to make a fog layer for the background of my film, haven't really found anything out there to help.
I know you can make fog with fractal noise, or by means of your smoke screen, but how could i put a layer of fog say behind trees or to hide the top of a mountain

TUTORIAL NOTES:
UPDATE: The Texture element is indeed from the Evolution collection and not the Riot Gear one as stated. The project file contains the Smoke Element, the project file has been excluded so that you can experiment.
