Brief Description

A parallax scrolling layer to be used with ParallaxBackground.

Member Variables

  • Vector2 motion_mirroring - The ParallaxLayer’s Texture mirroring. Useful for creating an infinite scrolling background. If an axis is set to 0 the Texture will not be mirrored. Default value: (0, 0).
  • Vector2 motion_offset - The ParallaxLayer’s offset relative to the parent ParallaxBackground’s ParallaxBackground.scroll_offset.
  • Vector2 motion_scale - Multiplies the ParallaxLayer’s motion. If an axis is set to 0 it will not scroll.


A ParallaxLayer must be the child of a ParallaxBackground node. Each ParallaxLayer can be set to move at different speeds relative to the camera movement or the ParallaxBackground.scroll_offset value.

This node’s children will be affected by its scroll offset.
