[quote="zeno":3mzgtqd0]On the right side of the GUI at the bottom of the screen there are 3 tabs. Simply click the Layers tab and then the icon with a up arrow on it, this should add a new layer.[/quote:3mzgtqd0] Thanks, and how do I add an object to the layer?
you click on the layer to select it as the active layer, then create your objects, and they will be on that layer. You can also move an object to another layer by clicking and dragging it into the appropriate layer in the layer bar.
To do a parallax effect click the layers and then on the left you should see the Properties for a layer. With that you can edit the Scroll rate values to change the scrolling speed for a layer and create the effect you want.
