Best way to create trails?

Right now, I'm basically spawning a trail object underneath the thing that's being trailed every tick; this trail object is set to gradually disappear over time. Is there a better way?

That's how I would do it. I can't think of a better way.

Can't think of any other way.

That's the way I do it... Just give the trail object the "fade" behavior and spawn them rapidly... like every tick or 0.x seconds.
