Parallax effect helps create an illusion of depth in an image, and works well on Apple devices and services. To increase your chances of selection by Apple TV, we highly recommend submitting Parallax artwork with your title.
*For those using a Windows machine, one of our awesome filmmaker made this quick video to help.

How to Create LSR (Parallax) Poster Art
Step 1. “Select Subject” to mask “talent” i.e. actor(s)
Step 2. Right click on talent, “cut and paste as layer”. Now talent and background are on 2 separate layers. Rename talent layer to “Talent”.
Result: Talent Layer
Step 3. Repair Background
*Note that the background is only revealed by a few pixels in the Parallax effect on Apple TV - don’t go crazy here.
Step 4. Export Each Layer Separately
Open both PNG files in Parallax viewer
Step 6. Move Talent layer above Background layer
Step 7. Hit Play button to confirm cool parallax effect
Step 8. Export → LSR → Into .itmsp folder, same name as original 2x3 PNG (only with .lsr extension, of course). Make sure to include the title name in the file name.
Step 9. Once you have the completed file, please:
send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org , do not attempt to upload to your title page
include subject: Parallax Artwork - "Title Name"
make sure you email from the same email associated to your Filmhub account
