now select the first light tick

place to the first tube you want to illuminate
mess around with the settings til that light is on that one tube

the other 4 ticks just horizontal and vertical to 200

each tube you illuminate will have different values depending on how large or small you want the light to be
after you have the light for the top layer hide that layer, select the second and make the light for the second tube
do the same with the third and then close that layer

copy merged
paste in animation shop as new animation

in PSP hide that layer
go back and unhide the very top layer
copy merged
paste after current animation
do the same for the second and third lights as well

lastly select the bottom masked tube original image again
