I just read an article on ThinkVitamin about creating some nifty parallax scrolling style animation by using multiple layers of images that shrink at various proportions when you resize the browser window. A few of the comments noted that it’s unfortunate that the animation is only apparent when resizing the window, and something that would go fairly unnoticed by most people.
Being a lover of all video games, old and new, I thought this trick that I’ve seen in so many side scrollers was brilliant. My first thought was how to combine this with Script.aculo.us’s Morph effect so that you can see the animation without actually resizing the browser window. Turns out it wasn’t that hard – check it out!
Pretty slick. Now I’m determined to find a need to use this trick in Aethora....
