From Jonathan Nicol: Even if you’re not familiar with the term “parallax scrolling” you will certainly be familiar with the tech­nique. Parallax scrolling is a 2d anima­tion process that creates an illu­sion of depth by animating fore­ground layers faster than back­ground layers. When you observe the land­scape from a moving car, objects closer to the car appear to pass you faster than scenery further away. Parallax scrolling uses the same prin­ciple to trick the viewer into thinking they are observing a 3d scene. · Go to Build a parallax scrolling website inter­face with jQuery and CSS →
