Learn how to build your own reusable Motion Trail Animation Preset using shape layers and expressions. I also provided a free motion trail animation preset that you can use immediately without having to write any expressions.
⭐️ Also as mentioned, if you are interested in a part 2 tutorial on how to make the preview animation, I will get to it if this tutorial Instagram post gets over 750 likes (will be posted 1pm EST)! I did not want this tutorial to be too long, and I wanted everyone’s opinion on whether this is something I should spend more time on! So please share this with your friends on Instagram!
