How do you do one of those gradient trail thingies, when a sprite rushes into the scene and a gradient follows it...

Well this is how I personally do it. Idk if this is how others do it but yeah...you'll get an idea of how to do it obviously.

First make a linear gradient. In the color ramp on the right, choose a light color in the character, in this case, in Pulseman it was pinkish. So I set it to pinkish. Now on the right arrow of the color ramp, click a darker shade of that first color. In this case mine was a darker pink, kind of close to a dark red. Now you alpha that all the way out.

Put the gradient behind your character like I did. Find a good position, play with the size of the gradient until you get something you find that you like. Now, you can -- you don't have to, but I think it makes it seem a little more effective, set the gradient to the blend mode add.

Now, you can add some motion blur, like I did, but once again, its just if you want to. I did just 'cuz I think it looks cooler like that. You blur the X Axis 20, and put the quality on low. This way it will actually show up with the V-Cam there. Now move it over to the right/left whichever direction so you can't see both parts of the blur. So that it's only being blurred as if the character was running in that direction. Then set it to overlay or something, even alpha it. Whichever you feel looks best. ^^

Lmao, nah, I just opened up Flash and made it real quick if that's what you wanted. And just to get back into Flash, I haven't opened up Flash in a while, so I was like, eh, might as well. XD

Will do. I've been addicted to an online game. XD

But I deleted it so now I'm back on track. (As you guys probably noticed I didn't post here in like 2-3 weeks. XD)

Yeah I don't blame you for not knowing. Pulseman is a game that aired on the Sega Genesis only in Japan. It was never released to the US. It is now available for us on WiiWare from what I know...I'm not sure if it still is...but I think it is. I got it on an Emulator and its really an interesting game. Imagine Megaman in a Sonic like gameplay with a Ristar universe. It's a really good game and I seriously suggest you play it. ^^
