The Flare effect is not working when applied to a white background or object.(TS228) Symptom:
When attempting to use the Flare effect on a white background, surface or object, there appears to be nothing applied regardless of the light color setting.
This is expected behavior. The Flare effect is done by adding "lightness" value to the item based on the underlying color of the item. White is the maximum value of "lightness" in this application and therefore any added "lightness" will not be possible. Changing the Flare light color will not have any effect either since this only adds color. White already has all the colors at maximum and nothing more can be added.
It is recommended that if you want to use the Flare effect you do so over a background, surface or object that is not solid white.
