    Inherits from: Renderer

    TrailRenderer is a Unity component that creates visually appealing trails behind moving objects, like the tail of a comet streaking through the sky. These trails can enhance the realism of fast-paced games or add visual flair to various effects. Dive into the Unity's TrailRenderer Documentation to explore its capabilities in more detail.

    Properties

    time

    number

    Retrieves or sets the duration in seconds that the trail takes to fade away completely.

    Determines the starting width of the trail at its base.

    endWidth

    number

    Specifies the ending width of the trail at its tip.

    Scales the width of the trail uniformly.

    Enables or disables automatic destruction of the trail renderer when it finishes emitting particles.

    emitting

    boolean

    Indicates whether the trail renderer is currently emitting particles.

    Sets the number of vertices to use for each corner of the trail.

    Specifies the number of vertices for each cap of the trail.

    Defines the minimum distance between consecutive vertices in the trail.

    Determines the color of the trail at its start.

    Specifies the color of the trail at its end.

    Provides the number of positions in the trail's vertex array.

    Sets the tiling of the trail's texture along its length.

    Adjusts the distance of the shadow cast by the trail from the visible geometry.

    Enables or disables the generation of lighting data for the trail.

    Defines a curve that modifies the width of the trail along its length.
