    Does anybody know how this effect could be achieved on text?

    The appearance of movement or even motion trails??

    Here’s one way…
    Using Object/Blend, setting the tail object to Opacity zero.
    Possibly adding Blend/Replace Spine and Outer Glow.

    Here’s an example file…

    Also try the Blur>Radial Blur effect.

    Set it to zoom and set the zoom centre to the appropriate position so as to imitate the direction that the object is supposed to be moving.

    Probably wont work as pulling off the above, but it’s pretty universal and its quick and easy
