Parallax Effect

    Question

  • I'd like to implement a parallax effect like one available on Start screen, tried several web solutions sites but none gives a real smooth scrolling effect (need to offset a background image)

    Anyone has one that works fine on Metro apps?

  • Saw it together with others XAML solutions (there's one on CodePlex also) but I need a HTML counterpart, as said, found many but none satisfied me in terms of scrolling smootness.

  • That's what i tried, it works but final result is not smooth as Start page.

  • hmm... would love to get this working too. Did you use css transitions or change the css yourself directly?
