How to make a shockwave in CompositeLab
First you import the clip you want to add the shockwave-effect to. You place it on the timeline, and do the colour-correction and add contrast and such. (You can of course use a preset)
After you're done with the look of the shot, you copy it.
On the copy of your clip you add the grade-effect called "Waves: circular". Change the Origin, Amplitude, Frequency and Phase options so that they fit your shot the way you want it. (Put the origin-point at the place the shockwave comes from).
Next, you make a rough mask that has the same shape as the waves on the clip. Remember to put the feather-level where it matches the effect. Invert the shape.
Animate the mask so it moves across the screen. (Or whatever fits your shot).
You should now have a pretty cool shockwave in your clip!
