Feature Request: Parallax Preview in editor

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Oct 03, 2012 9:47 pm

It would be really useful to preview how layers parallax in editor. Currently it's very trial and error to get something in the right place in a layer that parallaxes.

I'm not quite sure how this would work. But I guess what I'm asking for is that when I place something on a layer relative to other layers in the editor - that's where it will be in game.

Hey berry, if your working with a lot of objects spread over different layers these tips should have you working efficiently again.

1. On the right hand side click on your layers tab, select a layer and tick the box on the left hand side "Parallax in editor" under editor properties.

2. Set the "View" in the view tab along the top to "Zoom to 100%". Now when you place things on the layers - thats where they will be in game.

Or you can change "parallax in editor" in the layer properties to "yes".

I'm was having something similar here: http://www.scirra.com/forum/vertical-parallax-scrolling_topic55895.html?KW=.

I think the idea is to switch on "parallax in editor" before you start putting down your tiles.
