I want to create a bullet trail in After effects.
Can anyone help me how to do?

can you use a 3d software to help you to do this ?
the idea is to make a black and white movie, used as displacement map in AFX,
it gives a kind of matrix bullet trail effect,
but you can cheat this in 2d, try to use displacement map effect, it's pretty cool for this king of things, use grey for background, it doesn't affect displace, and a B&W for your trail, then apply distort/displacement... to your movie, and select your grayscale composition as displacement layer.
have fun !
