I'm not sure how to describe the effect I'm looking for. I want the lines to come out from a center point and grow and move out radially from that point.

Here is a still of the effect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This should be fairly easy to do using shape layers and repeaters.

Make a rectangle shape adjust the width and height then add a repeater.

Set the repeater transform position to 0 in the x any y. Set the number of copies to your desired number. Set the rotation to the number of 360/ the number of copies.

Animate size and position for the rectangle path.

Here's one way, with a shape layer with a circular path, a dashed stroke, and a Repeater:

Looks like Ridley beat me to it. Good to get confirmation, though.
