masking smoke

Hey all, just wondering how people generally handle the seams when your plate has smoke all over the place, like at 1:15 in MPC's Prometheus breakdown with the truck driving down the road and the smoke passes visibly over the threshold where the CG is incorporated.

your help is appreciated ~
