Vector shape layer trails in After Effects

Welcome to 2016 and here is another After Effects tutorial. Vector trails for shape layers, really cool and hip. Anyways, here is the expression I talked about, you'll want to watch the video too, but here it is to copy and paste.

(sometimes when you copy and paste it might add extra stuff in there, so double check the expression)

D=Math.sqrt(value[0]*value[0]+value[1]*value[1]);
rot=radiansToDegrees(Math.atan2(value[1],value[0]))
XS=transform.scale[0]/100;
YS=transform.scale[1]/100;
TC=Math.cos(degreesToRadians(rotation+rot));
TS=Math.sin(degreesToRadians(rotation+rot))*.9;
[D*TC*XS,D*TS*YS]+position
