Remember how in the reissue of starwars they added a circular shockwave to the death star when it exploded?

Well is there a way to do this in vision lab. I was trying to use the optics filters, however I do not know how to change the axis of the effect so it look 3D.

Any ideas?

Make the optics very bright, and make them move very fast out of the Earth (and out of frame). That should work.

The only way to do that with the optics, as far as I know, would be to render out the optics efffect, then import the rendered footage and composite it in as stock footage.

Also, you could composite one of these old AlamDV2 Plugins as stock footage. You'd be able to to get a fairly 3D-ish look with them.
Hope that helps.
