  • Parallax...anyone else tried?

    movemaine.com

    Is my first attempt at using the parallax motion.

    Anyone else tried and what do you think of the parallax in general?

    Wow, that's freaky cool! I like it (as long as it doesn't interfere with or slow my acutal use of the site.)

    It's similar to the techniques Max Fleischer and Walt Disney used back in the '20s and '30s to create movement perspective in their cartoons.

      Why did I think I saw bullet holes in that hiking sign? I better get to bed.

        Is it "wabbit" season?

          I've seen it used to illustrate 3D graphics. The Big3D website uses it to explain how to set up lenticular 3D motion flips.

          It's a pretty cool effect. Can you animate it though? It only works when I mouse over it.

            That's the part I liked.

              It depends on your browser. Some will animate whenever you move your mouse anywhere on the screen. Others only on mouseovers.

              Do you think it works for a hiking website? Going through the trees, etc.?

                Most definitely!
                It's very novel.

                Though like Broacher I initially saw a bullet hole in the hiking sign. LOL.

                  Hey - I did something similar recently, it's a nice effect huh I recommend using low res photos (so as not to blow out the file size - should be smaller than vectors) and having a few 'layers' moving at different speeds, the front moving fastest, then slower for the middle, then hardly moving at all for the back layer. This will give the appearance of distance. Looks good!

                    PS I like the blurriness to the distant trees

                      Draw it as stroked arcs. Pathfinder does far more than connect or unite shapes. It also divides, crops and cuts with a mask. You want to divide everything then unite back together the bits so it looks...

                      You are emphasizing teeth.
                      Your doubled text is de-emphasizing the company name.

                      Pathfinder as PD said. Create all of your shapes (don't worry about over and under yet) ... then select all and divide, then grab the "bits" that need to be connected and unite them.

                      Feels very separated. No cohesiveness. It reads more like a poster than a logo.

                      Less is more in a good logo. Needs to be more abstract. You want to be able to communicate the idea with the...

                      The advice I got when I was in art school over 20 years ago was "don't stay here." But by the looks of the maps PD posted, there are very few places to relocate to.

                      It's not impossible...
