Now what I can achieve is only one trail after each point.like this


The effect I want to achieve looks like blow.
There are many trails after each point.
Trails after each point are different with each other.

I would use a multiple shape layer and a repeater to create that look.

That's really hard to do. Fortunately, Adobe has a series of pre-made but hard to find Expressions in their expression sampler. I have shared mine from ages ago here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2S2b7kN6I8iX2VLZ1ZESURuUnM

You want the comp called random rotation. From there, you will have to work through some other details, but the expression, the hard part to write, will work just fine, and you will need to animate the shape layers and probably use a stroke effect and so on.
