that IS a cool name... sounds familiar, too! from a comic, maybe?

@Rasupdoo @matoakit isn't parallax that thing you do where you have multiple background layers and they scroll at different speeds

@cardstails @matoakit

i think you're right! it was a big thing during the 16 bit era of videogames, iirc

@Rasupdoo @matoakit I think it's still used nowadays, it feels like a timeless technique

@cardstails It was easy on resources and made early 3D exist easily, it was quite the innovation!

A lot of cartoons use it too, with multiple layers moving at different speeds, the machines that do that with physical drawn pages are MASSIVE.
