Close Up Smoke - Stargate - 11-05-2013

I've been trying to get the camera to move through or even close to smoke and no matter what I do I can't get a good clean edge to the smoke. It always looks blurry. I've experimented, I think, with all the settings and while I can get great looking smoke at distance I can't seem to get as sharp a close up as I would expect.

I know this is incredibly vague but I've tried to many different options to really post anything specific. I've included an example.

Any advice would be appreciated.

FumeFX, like Maya fluids, is a voxel based fluid sim and it will look softer the closer you get to it - similar to 2D images.

That's what I suspected.
