Creating a fading after image
on Feb 26, 2014 at 10:52:08 pm

Hi there,

I've got a short project which basically consists of two layers, a black background, and the white logo. The white logo has some code I found on another thread generating a new random position every 10 frames or so, so it jumps around like an old screensaver

So far, its looking good. But what I'd like to add is a slowly fading effect, so that each time the logo moves, it leaves behind an afterimage that fades from white to black.

Is there an effect that will do this for me?

Many thanks in advance,

Nick

You should be able to accomplish that with the Echo Effect
