Thursday, February 26th, 2009>p>We’ve featured several implementations of the parallax effect here on Ajaxian. The newest creation comes from the team at Piksite who recently released their MooTools-powered mParallax extension:
mParallax is an adaptation for MooTools framework of jParallax whose its author, Stephen Band, describes it like “jParallax turns a selected element into a ‘window’, or viewport, and all its children into absolutely positioned layers that can be seen through the viewport. These layers move in response to the mouse, and, depending on their dimensions (and options for layer initialisation), they move by different amounts, in a parallaxy kind of way”.
The image really doesn’t do it justice and you should check out the demo to really get a feel for the capabilities.
As Moo team member Aaron Newton said, “For all you people using MooTools to make your own 8-bit side-scrolling NES clones, this is your library.”
