How would I add comic-like trails to projectiles, such as arrows? I have an example from YouTube, but the effect is done in another software.


The effect occurs around 27 seconds, where an arrow is shot and there is a blue trail behind it.


You have to use a particle system inside a particle system.

Just add the particle system you want to appear on the object you use for the first system, tweak the time and that should do it.
