How to Create Scrolling Parallax in Fusion Without Keyframes

A Blackbird Called Sue shows how you can make a scrolling parallax effect using a single texture.

A new tutorial from the Blackbird Called Sue channel shows how you can make a classic scrolling parallax effect in Fusion/Resolve. The tutorial works procedurally and adds animation to the whole thing without using a single keyframe.

Ideally, this is where a node-based system shines. While there are some expressions through the Custom Tool in Fusion, A Blackbird Called Sue walks through the math bits, making them straightforward as possible. 

The tutorial author does note that if you’re on Davinci Resolve or Fusion 16, you should consider an update to the latest version (16.2.4 at the time of writing). This fix included an important performance fix for the Custom Tool.
