Now, we are happy to share with you that the code-free parallax scrolling animator is open to all designers looking to create pixel-accurate sites for their clients, without the head ache of writing code.

What is Parallax Scrolling Anyways?
Parallax Scrolling is a technique first implemented in 2D platform games. By making the background images move slower and foreground elements move a bit faster, developers were able to provide the players an illusion of depth.
In the modern day,the exact same technique is being used on websites to introduce motion and create a sensation of depth as the user scrolls through the web page. Parallax recently skyrocketed in popularity amongst the web design community 2013.
With the new “Code-Free Parallax Scrolling Animator” designers will be able to add the parallax effect into web designs in a visual way, and animate every parallax element visually. You can preview the effect at any stage of the process.
Enjoy full control over the speed, rotation, transparency, trajectory of each object and finally move it with pixel-perfect accuracy as the viewer scrolls through the web page.
In the conventional process, you could only preview your design choices and compositions at the end of it. With Webydo your parallax site is a work in progress and you can tweak the details as long as you see fit.
