Hi helpful forum!!
Ok, to start, I have searched this topic and there are revelant posts, however, few and far between..
I am quite surprised there is not more info on this topic as I would consider these to be staple video effects..
It would seem to me that trails are a video based delay effect, creating copies of the original object with decreased opacity..
Motion blur a variant of the above but it would seem like there is no physical space between the copies....the pix convolve object seems to use a bit of a blur effect.
I don't believe its possible to use Delaywrite/read with GEM, if I am wrong, I would love to know...
This purpose of this thread is of course for me to find a solution but also to introduce this topic anew, as I think these effects should be more accessible within the community..
Thanks in advance for any light shed!
