Illumination effects--sunburst
 Let's begin
800 X 800
1.) Frame 3--Resize = R-= 90% X2-sharpen-unsharp mask---Copy and Paste = C&P as New Raster Layer = NRL- place in center.
2.) With magic wand-click on frame#1--selection-modify-expand X6
C&P--P3--as NRL--place over frame 1--invert on frame-delete on paper--(keep selected)
3.)Tube 1 -R- if needed-C&P as NRL-place over frame 1--delete on tube--select none= SN-
duplicate = dup. tube--blur-gaussian6--Blend mode= BM= burn--opacity = OP.= 80% -merge down= MD--DS both tube and paper--then merge these 2--and move layer below frame
4.) Repeat 2 & 3-- for frames 2 & 3-- changing the paper if you wished..I used-- Frame2=paper 14---Frame3=paper8
5.) Click inside all 3 frame--select-modify--expand X6--Do it separately--
6.) Paper 19-- C&P as NRL--place over frame-- invert on frame and delete on paper--SN--DS--move paper below frame.-- rename-- frame1-frame2-frame3
(This is for animation) close these layers.

A.)Copy merged and paste into AS as new animation
B.) Close without/light---open w/light & frame 1--Copy merged and paste after current frame
C.) Close w/light & frame1--open Without out/light--copy merged--and paste after current frame.
D.)Close without/light--- Open w/light and frame2-copy merged--and paste after current frame.
E.) Close w/light and frame2--open without light and copy merged--paste after current frame..
G.) Close without light and Open w/light and frame3--copy merged and paste after current frame..
In animation shop you should have 6 frames
Click on 1st frame--edit--select all- animation properties--opaque--white
now change your frame properties for all frames
Frame 1= 150
 Frame 2 =50   
Frame 3 =300

22.) Find a stock photo of choice (I found mine under Halloween) find something you'd like..
Once done..Merge Visible all layers--R=  63%
