Creating a ball animation

Hello, I want to create a ball animation like the animation shown in the image. Any idea how to do this? Can I do this with the particles emitter or not? If yes, how can I make such an animation?

Create (each frame) a small object at the position of the ball and reduce its size and opacity.


You could also create a particle emitter with a max of 1 object, no gravity or other forces, destroy on finish and place it where the ball is. Almost identical to what @Gruk suggested, but you won’t have to worry about reducing the size or destroying it when it’s finished (pretty much create, place and it’ll look after itself)
