As my previous picture was a bit of a disapointment compared to its own preview (, I've redone the animation, this time using more planes for the parallax effect and added some extra animated bits.

I hope "the people" will not feel cheated this time ;)

And I hope this is not bad manners to post an updated version of a previous work as a new picture.

@Manupix: Thanks for the critics, much appreciated.

About the far layer, I agree with you, it should move less.

About the animation : I had a problem : since I wanted it to loop, I had to make it go left to right and then right to left, and I needed to cushion the movement at both ends. This cushionning resulted in half pixels moves that I couldn't handle simply. The easy way to do it was to speed up the anim and magnify the layers moves. In fact that's the only way I saw. I would be glad if someone could point me to a better technical solution to this issue.

Might forward this to the forums for that discussion, but I'm a bit scared. Newbee me.

About the light and atmosphere: I tried to put projected shadows, but couldn't reach a result that satisfied me. And I kind of like the fact that without these shadows, one can not immediately locate the light source, it gave the picture it a strange feeling that suited me.

i love this atmosphere, how you done this? really inspiring and for me; beauty ^^

Bien vu!

Contrary to Jabber, I think the far layers move too much, they make the sky look flat. The foreground slides by, say, 1m: you should keep this figure for all layers. Far layer moves by about 3m now, the one in front of it too.

There might be even more layers : the second from front, and the far one, could be split.

The whole anim might gain by being a little slower.

Light and atmosphere could improve too: more contrast, long shadows, dark mysterious areas.

Great parallaxing effect, it's cool what 5 planes do to a picture

I'm honored that my little preview could lead to such goodness :)!

To all, thanks for the comments and favs.

@StickyTape : You know, it's partly because of you that I ultimately did this anim:

For my previous picture, I was looking for ideas for the preview, as every crop from the picture I made was dull in 100x100. Viewing your preview pict for Wile E. Coyote's Space Exodus, I decided to do a scrolling with my picture and ended up with the simple parallax preview that finaly led to this anim ...

This works very well, nice job!  I enjoyed that I found new things even after looking at it a minute (the crypt in the back opening every other pass with the spooky eyes).  The preview seisure is fun to look at as well :D

Interesting effect, I must say.

so great!

well done my friend... nice parallax

I like it. Reminds me to Virtual Boy system.

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/3/2010 19:24

 The perspective is good but not quite perfect... I think the furthest layer should move perhaps a bit more. I don't think it is quite distant enough to move as slowly as it does.

I like it 

rod750 (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/2/2010 08:01

The movement it's some repetitive like a clock pendulum, but nice effect. 

Zedeem (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/2/2010 03:25

Sick! Awesome effect on it!

Khoryl (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/1/2010 21:42

It's way more interesting like that :)
