Scene


The scene effects are designed to enhance the 3D compositing environment.

Parallax

The parallax effect creates the illusion of 3D depth in a 2D layer.

In this example parallax has been used to apply a cracked concrete texture to some text:

Parallax text

The height map is used to determine the depth effect.

When set to None the host layer's own texture will be used for the parallax effect. You can also choose a different layer to use as the height map.

The Blur Height Map property can be used to create a softer, smoother parallax effect.

The parallax effect is most effective when combined with HitFilm's 3D lights.
