This is the second part (and most recent) of a parallax tutorial and animation using GSAP TweenMax. Before we begin a little bit of theory behind the parallax effect.
Parallax is a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between those two lines. The term is derived from the Greek παράλλαξις (parallaxis), meaning “alteration”. Nearby objects have a larger parallax than more distant objects when observed from different positions, so parallax can be used to determine distances.
Here’s an example of the final effect
