the parallax effect is a great effect to give depth and visual interest to your 2d games. if you set a simple parallax into your level however, you will face critical issues:

  • things start to move to places they should not be, messing up your long hours of level design
  • performance drops down as levels grow up
  • and little or no control per actor

so we created this complex yet simple to use blueprint that addresses these issues.



Smart Parallax🥇

smart parallax uses user defined actor layers and manages these actors smartly. utilizing things like:

  • update only when player moves
  • having a movement step and tick limit.
  • update actors that are within the parallax bounds 🚀

  • adjust the movement amount for each actor based on custom distance checks
  • support for Z and X axis parallax
  • support for unlimited amount of layers
