About the plug-in, i could see this could be kinda hard since there is a trail after the thing he's riding on, so I guess using a particle program like ParticleIllusion or After Effects would prove better result.

OK, atom, I can't guarantee anything, but I'm working in a particle system right now on this effect. Since I am no expert, I cannot guarantee anything will work at all in the end, but I am trying right now. I hope I can help you out here.

OK, I've got the effect, it looks "good-enough," but stupid Particle Illusion SE won't export the images with an alpha channel, so I can't turn it into a plug-in... Can anyone help me here? It's been a real thorn-in-my-side for some time now. Augh.

Export it on a black background and key it with the "Add" thingy in Chromy?

Run the images through Plugger but use the Add thingy.
