The Simple Smoke Effect creates a smokey filled environment. By default, Color 1 is used for the smoke color. However, an option lets you switch to Color 2.|
The Simple Smoke Effect is time sensitive and can use a Clock or Clock Modifier (available in the Simple Smoke Options) to modify the Effect over time.
If you enable the Fit To Brush Option you will paint with the Simple Smoke Effect sized to your brush.
The Simple Smoke Effect has the following Options Pane:|
|Clock:||This Effect can change over time. This control lets you select which of the four Clocks to use (Clocks are assigned in the Brush Pane). Any Green Colored Clock is the one currently in use. Tap the reset button and a Pop Up will appear that lets you reset any of the four Clocks to their initial value. Yellow colored clocks are not in use. Note that you can turn Clocks off by tapping a Green Clock turning all of them yellow.|
|Clock Modifier:||This value is added to the current Clock. You can use this to change where in time this Effect is, relative to the Clock (this allows different Effects to use the same Clock with different offsets).|
|Brightness:||This value changes the overall illumination of the smoke. Higher values produce brighter smoke.|
|Use Color 2:||If set to a Red X the smoke is produced using Color 1. When set to a Green Check Mark the smoke is produced using Color 2.|
|Fit To Brush:||If set to a Red X the Effect spans the screen such that as you paint you reveal the Effect. When set to a Green Check Mark the Effect is sized to the brush such that as you paint the entire Effect is within the brush itself.|
|Output Color 1:||By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.|
|Output Color 2:||By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.|

The Clock and Clock Modifier are very important when using the Simple Smoke. Even if you have all the clocks turned off, using the Clock Modifier will change the pattern of the smoke. The following shows the Clock Modifier set to a different value than the previous images:
