That is a fairly advanced effect, which uses several clips of stock footage to create the fireball, a particle generator to create smoke behind it, some clever grading and masking to create the scorch marks of the impact, as well as some additional particles and grading in layers to create the turbulent clouds and lightning.

Really they shouldnt of used Stock footage. Because people are going to think EL has a amazing partical generator.

I was just thinking because I thought "Wow that looks Like an amamzing softwere" Then I bought it and could never make the effects I saw on ur homepage. But still it is a good softwere and I love it =)

Hmmm, not sure if I agree with you on that one. The stock compositing that was done there can all be done with EffectsLab, and it seems pretty obvious to me that the effect isn't particles. But that effect is completely do-able in EffectsLab.
