  • 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.

          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.

              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

                      I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

                      Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

                      In terms of real world critique, if...

                      Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

                      Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

                      The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
