Parallax

Parallax is a special scrolling technique, wherein background images move by the camera slower than foreground images, creating an illusion of depth in a 2D environment.

The Parallax Object window helps to configure parallax movement in layers and groups. When selected, the following window appears:

Like in all other interactions, you need to enter a Name (or accept Kwik’s suggestion). Kwik will cleanup your name if it contains spaces, strange characters, Lua reserved names, and/or if the length of the name is bigger than 15 characters.

Kwik automatically uses the selected Layer option (in this example, layer Candice). If you intention is to parallax a group, select the appropriated radio button (and the group name).

Properties:

Information about the current layer content will appear in the top of the properties panel (position and size).

Damping boundaries options are:

  • X axis: when checked, it will set how far the object will move in the horizontal axis of the screen (higher numbers mean large distances);

  • Y axis: when checked, it will set how far the object will move in the vertical axis of the screen (higher numbers mean large distances);

  • Trigger action on forward: allows the execution of a previously created action while the device is rotated (in Z axis) in the user direction;

  • Trigger action on backward: allows the execution of a previously created action while the device is rotated (in Z axis) in the opposite user direction;
