I'm trying to recreate the wave effect used in the Warner Bros. logo
and am having a difficult time with it. I've been toying with the wave filters in CompositeLab but can't seem to get it to look right. So my question here is, can anyone see a way to create this effect with CompositeLab that I am just overlooking or haven't thought of?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If you could get footage of a swimming pool, or even your bathtub, with the water moving about a bit, you could use a displacement map to distort the footage based on that.

Would the footage be used in the final shot or just as a guide? Like would I actually need the footage of a bathtub or swimming pool to import into CompositeLab or would I just need to see how it reacts and tweak settings off of that?

No, you would use the actual footage. Shoot a clip of just the water moving from overhead, add that layer above your logo or whatever, then apply a Displacement Map composite to the water footage. the actual footage will disappear, and it will distort the lower layer based on the movement of the top clip, with the water.
