I ended up using Particular with a precomp of 3 different colored dots that I set as a sprite particle. Then, to compress the tail, I used the size graph and had it go down to 0 at the end. That way,

I'm sorry. I purposely didn't put in the added textures so I could keep the file small. Also, I forgot to change my render settings in the file I provided. I had changed to a hardware render on my com

Thanks for your help! That didn't work for me, unfortunately. But I did finally find the answer. When I substituted "offset" for "continue" it honored the ease of the keyframes.
