So this is a section where I'll talk about parallaxing a scene, or basically it means -- fancy word for moving different parts of your background at different speeds. In other words, objects far away will seem to move slower to you than objects that are close up to you. So let's look at an example of this, and this is a cityscape, and we're moving the camera, panning the camera across the screen. Actually, this gives us the impression that we are in a car driving alongside a roadway, maybe. And as we move, the objects that are in the foreground, like say, follow this point, for example; appear to move faster than objects that are further away. So the levels in this scene that are moving the slowest are the stars, of course; they are the furthest away. And then we have this part of the cityscape on its own layer, and that's on the separate layer from this darker skyline, and if you watch carefully you'll see of course that they all move at slightly different speeds.
