      Description: The Sunbeam Effect produces a central sun with beams of light radiating outward.

      Sunbeam produces its own colors and ignores Color 1 and Color 2.

      If you enable the Fit To Brush Option you will paint with the Sunbeam sized to your brush.

      Options: The Sunbeam Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Light RaysThis value sets the number of rays radiating from the central sun.
      Ray Width:This value controls how wide the rays are. Lower values produce thinner rays. Higher numbers produce thicker rays.
      Sharpness:This value controls how sharp the rays are. Lower values are more diffuse and blurry. Higher numbers produce sharper rays. With a value of 0.0 the rays become a single radiating field.
      Rotation:This value controls the angle of the rays.
      X Offset:This value controls the position of the sun in the X (horizontal) position.
      Y Offset:This value controls the position of the sun in the Y (vertical) position.
      Fit To Brush:If set to a Red X the Effect spans the screen such that as you paint you reveal the Effect. When set to a Green Check Mark the Effect is sized to the brush such that as you paint the entire Effect is within the brush itself.
      Output Color 1:By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.
      Output Color 2:By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.

      Example: The following image shows Sunbeam with the default values:

      In this image we have set Sharpness to 0.0:

      Here we have the default values with Light Rays set to a much higher value:
