OtherCubed Trails is an add-on for After Effects that creates amazing, fully dynamic trails, Swooshes, and speedlines. You can set up a Trail in seconds, and apply dynamic effects to give even more life to your animation.
With OtherCubed Trails, you don’t need to worry about what you want to create a trail on – it will parent to any layer regardless of expressions or crazy parenting setups.
The trails created are completely dynamic and will update instantly to any change you make – so you don’t have to worry about updating them every time you want to move a layer over a couple of pixels.
OtherCubed Trail Features
Fully dynamic trails that update instantly in your composition
Add additional dynamic effects:
Line velocity – have your trails react to the velocity of whatever they’re connected to, creating some lovely physicality.
Wiggler – add a touch of randomness to your lines with the wiggler
Add Movement – add some additional linear movement to your lines – great for creating trails that feel as if they’re flowing – or for making your trail as a base to use for creating hair, flags, faux smoke, or whatever you fancy!
Trails work with all shape layer effects – add trim paths, repeaters, zig-zags to your heart’s desire.
A velocity based line length checkbox scales dynamic effects to the velocity of your trail.

-When changing the ‘Point Control Layer’ to a non-trail point layer, the trail will emit from the anchorPoint of the layer rather than the top left corner
– When creating a new trail control with the shift or multiple select method:
– the point will stick to the anchor point of the parent layer rather than the top left hand corner – if the parent layer is 3D, the point will automatically be made a 3D layer as well.
