Show where object has been, leave trace of animation?

Is it possible to show where an object being animated has been before the current frame? I dont really mean motion blur, more like setting some blending mode to something like additive and compare frames, thus also showing where was before the current frame.
New to this so might well be missing something obvious…
Thanks

Look in to Motion Path function.

Not sure if its what you mean but this work well.


Also if your using bones… there is the “Ghost” view…

you can find both of these in the Attributes Panel > Armature Data (the little man Icon) > Ghost … and/or… Motion Paths > then set your Range and Steps…

Ghost sounds interesting, I will check it out. Thanks!
