    Im having difficulties creating an effect and am looking for some ideas.

    I am trying to create an effect that creates a trail that follows a laser image around. Similar to the Path follow/Write out style animation cue except not controlled by a predefined path and rather is controlled by the movement of the image.

    eg : Create a simple frame with a dot in the middle , when the dot frame is moved via the X and Y position live control, a trail follows behind the dot like a motion blur, when the dot stops moving the trail follows and then disappears.

    hope that makes some sense..

    thanks for any and all help.

    Thanks to Alexey for the tip.

    Create a new Shape Cue:

    Set the shape type to Live Channel Recording Mode:

    Select the Input Recording Tab:

    Select Channel 17 for the X and Channel 18 for the Y Inputs:

    Use the Channel control tab Pad1 control to move the laser image around creating a real time tail effect following it.

    Play with and adjust the Shape parameters and Input Recording parameters as needed to create different types of trailing effects.
