2.6 Background and foreground parallax
- background parallax.
The value is set as a percentage of the image width and characterizes the maximum remoteness of the background objects. Thus, the greater is the parallax value the more distant is the background image from the viewer.
- foreground parallax.
This value is also set as a percentage of the image width and characterizes the maximum propagation of the upper (outer) layer in relation to the image plain. The greater is the foreground parallax value, the closer the object is moved to the viewer,and the greater is the 3D effect.
The experiments have shown that the best 3D effect is obtained at the parallax value ranging from 5 to 10.
- relative depth scale of the layer.
The scale reflects the layer position in space relative to other layers. The depth value is set in relative units and ranges between "-100" to "100", where the maximum value (100) corresponds to the foreground objects, and the minimum (-100) – to the most distant objects.
Layers with the depth value of 0 lie in the lenticular plane, layers with the depth value greater than 0 are "elevated" above the lenticular plane, layers with the depth value less than 0 sink down.
