    Creating a default Heads & Trails, one thing that doesn't look great is that the trails connect in straight lines from point to point. This makes the effect looks worse and worse as the distance between points increases. Here's a simple spinning trails system. Notice how angular the trails appear:

    Is there something I can do to smooth out the trails, other than just adding more points? I was hoping there might be some way to interpret the points as a bezier curve, but I don't see anything like that.

    Hi, at the moment you have to use more points yes. In the future we're thinking of adding more strip outputs / options to render particle strips.
