ParallaxBackground

Inherits: CanvasLayer < Node < Object

Category: Core

Brief Description

A node used to create a parallax scrolling background.

Description

A ParallaxBackground uses one or more ParallaxLayer child nodes to create a parallax effect. Each ParallaxLayer can move at a different speed using ParallaxLayer.motion_offset. This creates an illusion of depth in a 2D game. If not used with a Camera2D, you must manually calculate the scroll_offset.
