k, idk if this has been asked before, but how do you make a shockwave effect, as in something hitting something (ie. tennis racket hitting a ball) and shockwaves come from that part.

If your not sure that something has been asked before, why not try the search button? And actually, this has come up before. If you own any fxhome products, make sure to register them under "user preferences".

Shockwaves can be done with effectslab pro by putting a displacement map composite of a neon light in the shape of your shock wave.

PS: I really think the search button is overrated. You usually get several pages of irrelevent results that you have to sift through to find what you're searching for.

Actually this is really easy. All you need is Composite Lab (lite or pro)
You should make a copy of your footage and put it on the timeline. In the bottom clip, add the Circular wave in motion. The on the upper clip add an extending circle mask where you want the wave. Play around with it and you'll get it right.
