A quick tip tutorial on how to create a motion trail in Adobe After Effects.

In this short video tutorial, I want to show you how to create a motion trail effect. Creating a motion trail on your artwork or shape layers is made easy with the Echo Effect.

To access the echo effect, click the Effect panel at the top of the program window, then Time – Echo Effect.

The echo effect can create a very clean motion trail and respects shape layer styles like a gradient very nicely. So in this quick tip will show you what you need to know to control this effect and how to dial it in.
