Lee Brimelow a Platform Evangelist over at Adobe has posted a rather nice (and might I say) easy to follow tutorial on how to create a parallax photo effect. For those of you who don’t know what “parallax photo effect” is, think Biography channel when they don’t have video for say a American civil war documentary. So instead they cut out photos of objects in the foreground and make them move faster than the background. The cool thing about Flash CS4 is it brings things that could only be done in AfterEffects to Flash. Simply by moving around 3D space metrics users can simulate this effect. I can’t wait to try this in a project. I also think adding some more animation to the background while you do this effect could also introduce some very interesting results as well.
