Parallax effect helps create an illusion of depth in an image, and works well on Apple devices and services.
You will need to create parallax artwork for the 2x3 and 16x9 images. Make sure the images you start with meet our image requirements.
*For those using a Windows machine, one of our awesome filmmaker made this quick video to help.
Step By Step Video
Image must be: 2000x3000 (2x3) & 1920x1080 (16x9)
Image must contain key art and title ONLY
Recommended but not required: create LSR in Pixelmator Pro or Photoshop

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”.
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
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 or 16x9 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 both via email to [email protected] , 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
