You animate it. Using keyframes, you can position it at intervals and the program will fill in the frames between. For example, position the effect where you want it on frame 1. Then go to frame 10 and reposition it where it should be now. The software will interpolate the positions for frames 2-9 automatically. It won't always be accurate though, since it doesn't know how the hand is moving exactly. So you may have to go to some of the frames between and reposition it, creating new keyframes.

If you are using an effect created in VisionLab, like a particle effect, you can just adjust it to the length you need. If you are using stock footage, you will have to use one technique or another to composite it onto your footage depending on the stock clip you actually use.
