Opacity of Points
This slider controls the opacity of the points. If you don't want to see any points you can set this option to 0 which will make the points transparent.
With this popup menu you can define if you want to use a predefined shape or use an Quicktime image sequence.
This slider enables you to control the aspect ratio of the predefined shape.
Feather the borders of the predefined shapes with this slider.
Select the color for the shape here.
Apply a Quicktime image sequence here. This feature gives you full control over each and every point of the trail. You can also use a single image here. In this case all points will be shown with the same image.
Do this, if you like to use an image sequence:
-Assemble a folder with images you want to use for the points.
-Number the images in a consecutive order.
-Open Quicktime Player and select Open Image Sequence... from the menu.
-Select the folder with the images.
-Save the sequence.
Now drag the image sequence onto the current image well.
- Magnify Point -
Enable the magnify-feature here. This feature magnifies the points to highlight them on the trail.
Choose the point to be magnified here. You can also use fractions here. For example: If you enter 1.5 the point 1 and 2 will be magnified equally. If you enter 1.9, point 1 will be magnified a little bit and point 2 will be magnified much more. If you animate this slider with keyframes you will get a nice animation magnifying the points in a consecutive order.
This slider defines the magnification factor.
