MoInstanceBasic Coord. Object Transform Effectors
An animated MoInstance Object can look back at its own history a specified number of frames and create past states in the form of instances. These instances, in turn, are regular clones that can be affected by any Effector (especially effective is the Step Effector). Press the Ctrl-key if you want to view the effect in the editor view without playing the animation itself.
If the fact that the original object is visible bothers you, simply place the MoInstance Object and the Cloner Object into a Null Object, assign the Null Object 2 red vertices (not visible in the editor view or when rendered) and the MoInstance Object 2 green vertices (visible in the editor view and when rendered. Alternately, the object can also be moved outside of the view of the camera.
