Smoke and fog devices generate a haze that boosts the effects of lighting and makes beams of light more visible to spectators, resulting in a brighter display that looks attractive to the eye. Fog machines work by emitting a dense vapour into the air that looks like smoke. Haze machines and hazers are different from fog machines in that they produce a very light and subtle fog that lasts much longer and can hang in the air for hours rather than minutes. They do not produce the same visible effect so you will not achieve that cloud of fog or obscure normal vision like fog machines.
