Parallax Effect, 2.5D
The 2.5D or parallax effect is an incredibly popular method for bringing images to life when editing video with mixed media, such as photos, newspaper articles, and graphics. "Parallax" is rooted in the Greek word "parallaxis", which translates literally as "alternation". In imagery and animation, the parallax effect is when the movement of the background appears slower than the foreground to produce an illusion of depth. This alternating motion between the foreground and the background produces a feeling of changing perspectives that pulls the viewer in.
There are many methods and tools to create the parallax effect..
