Parallax effect is a long-known and widely used animation effect. Lately, the parallax effect has become a wide-spread and quite a trend element in web design, often referred to as “parallax scrolling”. Internet if full on many great examples of application of this effect in web design. As I planned to create a cool parallax animated background, my first goal was to write the shortest and simplest code to achieve maximum awesomeness! I’ll show you how I did it. In this tutorial, I’ll teach you the simplest parallax scrolling technique. Here, I am going to introduce you, a most flexible/responsive slider i.e. Parallaxfx_DG. It is so easy and useful. I have decided that I will post a page dedicated to this slider with it’s features and API later.
The idea of the parallax effect it in web design is built around giving a page depth by using several layers of images, all moving at different speeds in response to movement of the mouse or mouse scroller, so that a viewer get a full sense of 3D on the page. Parallax scrolling is an interesting technique, where, as you scroll, the background images translate slower than the content in the foreground, creating the illusion of 3D depth.
Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Mobile Safari, IE8+.
I have already tested Parallaxfx_DG plugin and it works flawlessly in the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Mobile Safari, and even IE8+.
