How to make a fading trail on layer (position)?

Hi guys,

if you have a layer, lets say a ball, go from left to the right side of the screen. Can you add an effect or trick to have trail behind the ball whichs fades after x time or length?

I know you could do something like this with particular and link the emitter on the ball. BUt what if it would be a hand going downwards... you know like titanic steamy window scene 😉

Maybe duplicate the layer parent it and have a forced motion blur with a fill? Guess that would be pretty render heavy.
