why not just use paint and use the colors you want to insert it. Try to separate the colors. open paint then color them all with black. Then open another different paint and color it green. Then open another different paint and color it with red. So on and so on.

Hello, what do you mean paint? The windows built-in programm? I didnt understand really pleasetell me again :)
Yes, paint, the built in program. You already have that in your windows after you bought the computer.
Step1: Open paint then make it black and name it "Black".
Step2: In your project tab, make a material and name it "Black" also.
Step3: In the Inspector tab, press select find the Black Texture.
Step4: In your trail renderer. Click the words at the side of the word "Element" and find the Black Material.
Those are the steps in the photobucket.
You'll need to put a material so it could have a color. You can make an image that is black and make a material of it. You could then put it to the material of your trail renderer.
