Help figure out passes..

i’m doing some R & D for a project,I need some help.Not that familiar with compositing.

I wonder what are steps for separating a character from smoke ,how do I setup the scene for that …like at 0:38 of this video ,you can see the character appears as an alpha.Even as the smoke passes over him.

also,i’m look to do some fx work,I saw a breakdown video,can someone name the passes,because i’m not sure what i’m looking at in some instances…this isn’t blender though…

anyone? at least the first question :slight_smile: :stuck_out_tongue:

So how was the smoke created? maybe a force field to separate
