Well, I think you should post it on General Questions or Tips forum but anyway...I dont know if it is exactly what you want, you may try this:
First you´ll need ImagePlane script from forwardgames.com, install the script and load attached scene that shows the principe - two planes moving at different speeds quick setup:

I think you have that backwards, brtk. The clouds should be scrolling slower than the trees since they are farther away.

The program I referred to was "The McNeil Lehrer News Hour" on PBS Television, usually seen around 6pm.

What I would like to achieve is something like:

a mult layered blue backround that is slowly moving up the screen diagonally and then text imploads over the layers and settles in the center at proper sixe...the backround continues to move. Many intros to sport shows and news programs are doing it. I think the software "Digital Juice" does this thing for a living...I can't afford the high price that they are asking for only one item.

Thanks CARM3D for your reply...jim

I don't watch television so I don't know specifically of the effect you're after.. But good luck. If you have DFX+ from the Lightwave 8 upgrade that may help you a great deal to make each layer a seperate element.

Actually I was just admiring the Diesel Banner add on this page, it uses this effect nicely, but done in flash
