    Making a shockwave out of a material?

    Hey guys.

    I've recently made a pretty sweet material that I'm really happy with.

    Here, the material is creating a "dry ice" effect where it's splitting as it moves downwards, creating a sort of cloud separation effect and fading out. Multiple noise layers are involved to ensure randomization benefits.

    But what I want to do next is to find out how to do one of the following:
    • I wish to make a shockwave using this material, where it grows out from the center and expands continuously until it expires. It makes a full circle on the outside, wrapping the spectrum around it like a regular shockwave ring.
    • I want to be able to make particles out of different colors that dissipate like clouds, similar to how it's happening in that picture above. Is there a way to make a cloud-like fading particle effect overtime using materials which is randomized?

    What would you recommend I look at, for each point? And is it possible? Also, any suggestions or doubts you may wish to express about this would be appreciated.
