I was under the impression that I could have particle trails themselves change colour along their length, inheriting data from the particle at each point in space. So if I particle was travelling fast and then slow, the resulting trail could be coloured to show which parts it was fast and which parts slow.

I've been telling trails to use particle colour and setting the particles to change colour by gradient parameter for direction.the particles are clearly changing colour as I play the simulation out.

When I render, however, the trails are only ever one colour - the colour their leading particle has at that point in time.

Any ideas where I'm going wrong?
