I'm trying to create the Japanese rising sun but only with after effects. I could create each layer separately, but I remember seeing a tutorial that allowed you to create those line bursts all at once. I can't seem to find the tutorial.

actually and even easier way may be to just make a circular shape layer using the ellipse shape tool.

twirl down the shape properties, then stroke properties and set the stroke color to red, enable the dash settings (hit the + by the dash settings) and increase the stroke size a lot.

from there you can probably just tweak those settings to create the sun.

Kevin pointed to the first post that I made on this topic, but I also have a second that gives a somewhat better approach (similar to what Kevin gave in his second post):
