Create a simple lighted warp effect using various filters such as the Color Halftone Filter.
- Color Halftone
- Polar Coordinates
- Radial Blur
- Blending Mode
Create a new image with square dimensions ( we used 400x400px ) with a "transparent" background. Press D to reset the Color Palette.
Render some Clouds ( Filter > Render > Clouds ). Next, render Difference Clouds ( Filter > Render > Difference Clouds ) four times. Do this by using the top menu to execute the Difference Clouds filter once, then pressing Ctrl-F 3 times to repeat the last filter (in this case Difference Clouds) three times.
Finally, apply a Radial Blur ( Filter > Blur > Radial Blur ) with the Amount set to 100, the Blur Method set to Zoom, and the Quality set to Good.
Press Ctrl-F to repeat the Radial Blur.

Optional: If you wish to add more color, create a new layer above all the existing layers. Set the Blending Mode of this layer to "Color". Now add color to this layer and it should add color to the warp.
