After Effects Expressions / Illusions

Stephen daimyo2k has a 6-part After Effects tutorial, Expressions / Illusions, on Youtube that many among other things creates a simple optical illusion without keyframes from a radial ray element created with the Polar Coordinates filter. In a cruder manner, you could instead use the Venetian Blinds transition to get some stripes, compify, and then use Polar Coordinates.

Related tutorials (mostly using Shape layers) can be found under the tag radial ray.

Here's part 6 (via):
